Edge is the clear pick on official ratings in this but has finished last in both starts this year. Bishop Wulstan won at Bath last month but something has gone awry in his last two starts and it's worrying to see blinkers applied here. CLASSIC MISSION has hinted at ability and drops into a seller for the first time. This is a poor race and he could be a bit of value under Oisin Murphy, despite having a bit to find at the weights.
