PRINCESS ICICLE is the least exposed of these having won over C&D on only her second start and gets the vote on that basis. She won't have to improve much to follow up on her handicap debut. Belle Park was a narrow-margin winner at Wolverhampton last time and will need to improve off a 4lb higher mark but both Full Bloom and Hereford Boy have claims judged on recent placed efforts. Cool Hand Jake has gone close here before but can't be trusted to run his race, though Sasheen could figure on one of her going days.
