Fairy Mist and Amber Moon have little chance at the weights while Cyflymder failed to take advantage of favourable terms in a claiming race here last month. Paphos completed a hat-trick at this course in January and is now rated 9lb higher. It remains to be seen if he can run up that mark, but SAHARIA looks fairly rated judged on his recent form that includes a win at Wolverhampton and he gets the vote to come out best in this.
