Trending is the only one of these to have won over the course and distance but is 11lb higher and has been confined to Polytrack recently. Dishy Guru arrives in good form having won a couple of times on Polytrack but he's still much better rated on the all-weather than Turf. PERFECT MUSE never ran as a juvenile but showed very good pace in most of her starts last term and, as she's likely to show more progress this term, she's handed the vote. Island Legend is by far the best handicapped horse in the race as he's won eight times on the all-weather, though never on turf. He's 20lb lower here, however, so has to be considered a major threat. Chester'slittlegem invariably runs well here and gained his only turf success on the track last season.
