None of these make much appeal on recent form but SOUL MAGIC gets the nod on his record at the track. He won this contest in 2011 and again last year so Harriet Graham's charge looks to have an obvious chance. Koh Samui went close over timber last month and may figure back over the larger obstacles but Endeavor has done most of his winning over hurdles. Zazamix has plummeted down the weights this year but has yet to show any benefit for it.
