It's difficult to find one without a chance in this nursery but SALUTATION just gets the vote as he looked progressive at Catterick and the extra furlong is in his favour. Cumbrian Craic won on soft ground at Doncaster and hasn't done so well on quicker going though it would be no surprise to see him bounce back while though all three of Marhaba Malayeen's runs have been on ground with plenty of give and there's no reason why he shouldn't handle faster going. Mystical Man did well to beat a big field at Pontefract and he's another who will be suited by the step up in trip while Charlie Em won a fast-ground Nursery at Catterick and has only been handed a 3lb rise.
