Most of these have won over a mile but have something to prove over today's trip. Soaring Spirits just held on for victory at Windsor last time and is upped 4lb but MANDY'S BOY can race off the same mark as when landing a claimer by four lengths at Redcar. She should have no problem with the longer distance on that evidence and is also preferred to Emulating, who will need to step up on his previous attempts over 1m2f. Sabre Rock may turn out best of the rest dropping back down a grade.
