Given those with form at the track don't look particularly well handicapped the vote goes to GAELIC WIZARD. He's unlucky not to have won yet having suffered three narrow margin defeats, the last couple on the Polytrack, and can finally get his head in front if taking to the surface. Place That Face was still beaten four lengths when runner-up over C&D last month and will need to step up on that to beat the selection though she did finish a couple of lengths ahead of the re-opposing Jermatt. Ella Fitzgerald is the least exposed and showed some improvement at Windsor last time.
