EMERALD BREEZE is the obvious choice in this. She wasn't unduly pressed to land a double over track and trip a fortnight ago and can defy a further 7lb rise. Soul Instinct has plenty to find with the selection on latest running but may be helped by the application of blinkers for the first time. However Douneedahand looks a bigger threat on her recent fourth at Kempton and can race off the same mark in this. Mornin Mr Norris has won at Southwell but was tailed off at the same track last time and it's hard to make any sort of case for the remainder.
