Gold Candy (RUBI ROCKS) tops the ratings after two qualifying wins but a double penalty leaves a mountain to climb.
Eight Ball (KDS) was narrowly beaten by Gold Candy and is now 2Lb better so clearly can reverse that form.
Thousand Words (AMERICAN PHARAOH STABLE) won a big early season maiden and followed up in a qualifier over 6F good. No impact under the penalty in two efforts since but is lightly raced and open to improvement.
Indian Mototo (TRUE BLUE STABLE) has only managed one place in four qualifier runs so needs to step up on what we have seen so far.
El Pastille De Oro (CLOSUTTON COGNAC) won a big maiden and has been carefully campaigned since to have every chance in this final.
Valient (ANFIELD ROAD) has placed in two qualifiers and though down the field not disgraced in two subsequent starts. Marchington has also run respectably without posting compelling claims.
Liverpools Present (GREEN AS GRASS)is one of the two horses generously donated by Anfield Road. HIs third to Gold Candy and Eight Ball was the first real sign of any worthwhile form. Would not need to improve much to be really competitive in this.
Zippy Val (BLACK CAT RACING) has struggled badly under the penalty since his qualifier win so hard to fancy.
Elsa Bloodstone (NEMESIS STUD) has generally had a good season but overall does not look a likely winner of this final.
Passionate Bimbo (BLACK CAT RACING) is still a maiden and hard to put forward.
ANALYSIS: Eight Ball looks to snooker them but EL PASTILLE DE ORO set to chew up the opposition.
ODDS: EL PASTILLE DE ORO 9/2 fAV, Eight Ball 5/1, Liverpools Present 6/1, Thousand Words 7/1, Elsa Bloodstone 8/1, Gold Candy 9/1, Valient 10/1, Indian Mototo 12/1, Marchingon 14/1, Zippy Val 16/1, Passionate Bimbo 20/1
