DR DOOLITTLE is much better than his last start in the Grade 3 Sea Cottage Stakes. It must be noted that the horse that finished second that day has come out and won since. He won his only attempt over this C&D in his penultimate start. The son of Ideal World takes a drop in class and may be too good for this field. PROSPECTOR has decent consistent form lines to his credit. It must be noted that the horse that finished fifth in his last outing has come out and won since. He makes his course debut today and if suited to the track, he should be one of the leading contenders. AUGUST RAIN has produced four decent efforts since shedding his maiden tag. He tries the 1800m for the first time and if seeing out the extra distance on offer, he should give a good account of himself. BEBOP is a filly taking on the males. She has produced two decent efforts since winning her maiden. It must be noted that the horse that finished second in her last start has come out and won since. She carries a handy galloping mass today and should run a big race.
