This looks between Arrigo and OPERA GAL now Ektihaam is missing. The former had some decent form when trained in Germany last year and should be approaching peak fitness now after a couple of recent runs. But he was well beaten on his only start in heavy going and Andrew Balding's mare is preferred. She should run her usual brave race from the front and it was testing ground when she scored at Salisbury last month. Circumvent is hard to win with nowadays, however, while St Moritz is difficult to predict and has never raced on ground this bad before. Epernay is held by Opera Gal on the book and simply looks out of her depth.
