It's anybody's guess which one of this bunch will come out best. Galiotto has claims as he won a division of this race last year and Baan finished closer at Yarmouth last time. Waldsee is a C&D winner and may figure if in the mood but the token vote goes to RED MYSTIQUE, not beaten far when third over 2m at Kempton in October. Kahfre won twice at the track last year and may be best of the remainder which is not saying much.
