Nozic won this in 2012 and can race off a lower mark today having tumbled down the weights last year. He's not easily dismissed back in this grade but a chance is taken that DYNAMIC IDOL will improve further on his return to action. The latter is upped 9lb for his win at Lingfield in January last year but that's the best piece of form on offer and he gets the vote. Red Anchor also won early last term but has failed to complete in a couple of subsequent starts and Zhukov has been well beaten since scoring at Fontwell in December though he's back on the same mark for this.
