This is anybody's race with plenty closely matched on recent running. Tasrih just got the better of Corporal Maddox when scoring over track and trip last month, while Nassau Storm beat Smokethatthunders only a half-length at Lingfield recently with Bowstar behind. Emkanaat finished a place ahead of Glanely when fourth at the same track last month, but a speculative vote goes to FIRMDECISIONS. The latter had a couple of subsequent winners behind when scoring over course and distance on his latest start and he may be up to defying a 6lb rise on the strength of that form.
