Multiple Polytrack winner Copperwood has yet to race on this surface but has claims if taking to it, while the rejuvenated Kipchak is a course winner and remains on a winning mark having landed a double at Lingfield recently. D'Urberville scored twice over C&D in December but has disappointed since so the vote goes to CALEDONIA PRINCE. He just failed to follow up an earlier victory over track and trip last time when headed close home with Brown Pete and Thrust Control well behind and gets another chance with the excellent Josh Baudains keeping the partnership intact.
