Burj Hatta has yet to finish out of the frame this year but it was very disappointing to see him beaten again on the Fibresand last time and he looks vulnerable again here. Preference is for KALAMKAS, who didn't appear to stay 1m2f at Newbury on her second start and was eased in the closing stages. Her debut third over this C&D suggests she has the ability to win a race of this nature. Indian Mist hasn't lived up to expectations but Martine's Spirit should improve for her first run and newcomer Salford Prince has an interesting pedigree.
