FLOOR SHOW is given the vote to land himself back in the winners enclosure, while both Sunshine Always and Hail Promenader are in good order at present and are worth noting. The selection scored on his final start as a two-year-old last season and started the new campaign in fine form when winning at Newcastle back in April. He was unable to follow up at Doncaster on his latest start but ran with great credit in defeat when settling for second place. He has been raised a further three pounds for his recent run but he still looks the class act in the race and is if at his best he looks sure to go close. Sunshine Always won on his debut at Wolverhampton last month and ran a little green in the process. This race looks a lot tougher but he is sure to come on for race experience and any market moves should be noted. Hail Promenader won on his final start as a two year old but although he has not totally discredited himself in two outings this season he has never looked like winning and should be treated with some caution as a result. Floor Show looks the most improving horse in the field and is the preferred choice.
