Crown Choice has the ability to get involved if he's in the mood and Clockmaker has the past form to figure but seems to have lost his way recently. Prime Exhibit will find the ground plenty fast enough but C&D winner Orpsie Boy has claims. Ballista landed the odds in a seller over track and trip last time which should have set him up nicely for this but the vote goes to POWERFUL PRESENCE to continue his winning ways. His won his latest start at Musselburgh with a bit to spare and may have enough left in the tank to defy the handicapper once again.
