CLASSIC VOICE comes out best at the weights and his win at Kempton in October is the best piece of form on offer. He's dropped in class here and can take this if handling the Fibresand. If he fails to reproduce his best then Jay Jays Joy is the obvious alternative as he scored over C&D in April and has held his form well since. Valley Tiger is an unknown on the surface, while Calormen and Eduardo cut little ice on their only starts here and the remainder look up against it on today's terms.
