Melting Dew (9/2), Walton Street (9/2), Soldier In Action (7/1), Platitude (15/2), Pacify (9/1), Hochfeld (10/1), Sir Chauvelin (12/1), Sofia's Rock (16/1), Watersmeet (16/1), On To Victory (20/1), Time To Study (20/1), Arch Villain (33/1), Nabunga (33/1), My Reward (33/1)

Verdict
MELTING DEW gives the impression he could be even better over this sort of trip and given that his win from last time out has already been franked by the runner-up at this meeting earlier in the week, he's taken to land the hat-trick here. Walton Street is entirely unexposed and he there could be more to come from Charlie Appleby's stayer this season. Soldier In Action landed this prize last year and remarkably returns on a much lower mark this time around; he couldn't be ruled out if Silvestre De Sousa can get the best out of him once again.
  1. Melting Dew
