Kozmina Bay scored over hurdles under today's amateur rider in December but Light The City is rated much higher over timber and has won two of his last three starts over obstacles. Goldmadchen does most of her racing at this course and won here off a 12lb higher mark nearly a year ago. She can figure and Naughtybychoice also has claims with a recent comeback run under his belt. MISTER FROSTY carried top weight to victory in this in 2012 and he gets the token vote to go in again off only a 1lb higher mark.
