Cracking Choice may well prove the pick of those with previous experience in this finale having reached the frame in three of his five starts, though this will be his first try over 6f. Krupskaya ran well on her debut at Ripon before biting off more than she could chew at Deauville and is another to consider while Team Challenge has been placed over this trip at Carlisle and Redcar and wasn't disgraced over a longer trip in a nursery at York last time over 7f. Tonality is open to improvement but Ann Duffield's filly SCARLET SPIRIT has a nice pedigree and may well be good enough to make a winning debut at this level.
