Iceblast won over 7f last month but could only manage fourth in this in 2012 with Joanna Mason on board. Tanawar stays a mile but would prefer faster ground and dual course and distance winner Violent Velocity makes more appeal. EDAS hasn't won for some time but ran well for third at Carlisle under today's rider and the veteran gets the vote given Very First Blade is another with something to prove over a mile.
