Angelo Poliziano is 7lb higher after winning at Ripon and is on his highest ever mark. Yurituni has gone up 6lb for her easy success at Lingfield but she scored from just 2lb lower at Pontefract in September and can make a bold bid with her rider's claim a help. Verinco is very consistent but may be better on a slightly less demanding track though he has the beating of Northern Dare on their run at Musselburgh last month. Silvanus has run well here in the past but like Ryedane could have been better drawn so the vote goes to INGLEBY STAR, who is drawn on the rails and very nearly scored here last July from a 5lb higher mark.
