Strictly Silver is 6lb higher than when winning this last year when Alfred Hutchinson, Global Village and Loyalty were all well beaten. Alfred Hutchinson arrives in better form this time around and may well turn the tables. Noble Citizen has rattled up a hat-trick at Southwell this year, counting Tellovoi among his victims, but is upped 8lb for his latest win. Sky Khan caught Fashion Line at the post to dead-heat for first over track and trip last time and the former has Connor Beasley's 5lb allowance in his favour today. Tres Coronas may need his first start since September so STAR LINKS is preferred having won a shade cosily in this grade last month, with Strictly Silver well behind, and he gets the vote.
