EDGED OUT gets the vote on virtue of his form at this course. A winner over track and trip in May, he wasn't beaten far when fourth on his return last month and gets another chance today. Lager Time found only one too good at Leicester last week and should figure off the same mark but Imperial Spirit's recent second came in lesser company on the Polytrack. The Black Jacobin also scored in a lower grade here last month but has failed to get involved since and Jimmy Elder makes more appeal dropping back to his winning trip after a second over 7f at this track last time.
