Imperial Oak is the top rated on account of his victory at Chepstow last month. However, he's posted woeful efforts either side of that win and it's hard to put any trust in him. LEA VALLEY BLACK makes more appeal as he was already a winner on Polytrack before landing a seller at Musselburgh last time and should make another bold in this similar company. Moonlit Dancer has a chance at the weights but arrives out of sorts though Warrant Officer could make his presence felt back at this level.
