There's little between these on official ratings but Love Marmalade has form in the book with a recent victory over today's trip at Nottingham. He'll go close again but TYPHON also ran well on his comeback when third at Wolverhampton and it's David Lanigan's charge that gets the speculative vote. Magika scored at Wolverhampton in December and steps up in trip here along with course winner Debdebdeb. Forced Family Fun ran way below par on his reappearance and Bin Manduro was a big disappointment on his latest start but Lamusawama is worth noting on his return.
