A solid-looking handicap with the vote in favour of PHOENIX APPROACH. Tim Easterby's 3-y-o scored in good style at Beverley in August and did well to finish as close as he did when fourth back at that venue last time. His mark remains a workable one and another bold showing looks on the cards. Sweet Reward is of a very similar ilk and is feared, ahead of Luna Magic and Angel's Whisper.
