The proven ability to handle soft ground swings the vote towards SHIP OF THE FEN
, who is set to race from 5lb above his winning mark at Salisbury last month but still has more to offer over this sort of trip. Mugatoo
responded well for Jamie Spencer at Doncaster last time and will be a big threat if he copes with these more testing conditions, while Island Brave
also has to answer similar questions but does stay well and could be there to pick up the pieces if his main rivals under perform for any reason. Rydan
goes well here but this is his stiffest test for a while.
