NORTHERN CALL rarely runs a bad race and the six-year-old arrives here on the back of a victory over 6f here in November. A reproduction of that effort today will make him hard to beat, although Money Tree and Gaelic Man are also of note.

A few of these have claims but the marginal preference is for LITTLE MISS EMILY because she is slightly more consistent. Sheedbdawon is closely matched with the selection based on a few meetings last year, while Princess Tiznow can also go well.

BARON BARRACUDA has steadily improved his form throughout his short career and this looks the right opportunity for him to get off the mark at the fifth time of asking. We Will Shine and Samedi Night look the most likely to pose the biggest threats.

HOOF HOOF AWAY's record of 0-28 wouldn't be the most inspiring but his recent second is by far the strongest piece of form in the book and he is taken to get the better of Worth The Wait and Candy Pants.
