Most of these are pretty exposed with Snooky and SEHNSUCHT sharing top rating. The former has been placed in four of five starts on Turf and will go close if handling the track but the latter makes more appeal. Alan McCabe's charge was beaten less than a length over C&D last month and gets the nod on that basis. Frederickthegreat, Frosty Friday and Dewala have all been placed here but have plenty to find at the weights so the unexposed Major Buckley could prove a bigger danger on only his second start.
