All four runners are having their first start of the year. MARKET TOWN showed the best form last season with a third at Newbury behind subsequent winning handicapper Code Of Honor and Charlie Hills' colt gets the vote on that basis. Enzaal and Secret Art finished ahead of future winners when placed in their respective maidens on the Polytrack and both make more appeal than Soul Intent, who looks to have plenty to find in this company.
