Sofias Number One is open to improvement after just the four starts in maiden company but has to give plenty of weight to BETTER SELF. The latter turned the tables on Malice Or Mischief when scoring at Wolverhampton last week and can take advantage of today's favourable terms. Riot Police has now raced 11 times without success and drops in class, while Ad Vitam had Beating Harmony less than a length behind when winning at Wolverhampton in January and he could prove best of the rest.
