KING SNIPER has been hammering on the door in stronger company than this and he is very much the one to beat. Silver Zephyr was only beaten by half-a-length on debut and he can go close again, while Let's Go Boss is unlikely to be far away either.

SPARTANBURG has been in cracking form, winning three of her last four starts, and she might be able to strike again whilst the iron is hot. Glide Baby Glide was just a length behind the selection last time and could prove to be the biggest danger again, while Double Down Britt completes the shortlist.

The finale won't take much winning and FRIENDS TALK, who drops in both distance and grade, looks to have as good a chance as any. Cheryl's Copy hasn't been without promise in her workouts and is a respected debutant, while She's A Queen also holds claims.
