EFISTORM is holding his form well and gets the vote here on that basis. He won a seller at Windsor last week, but has three wins on the Polytrack to his name and looks the one most likely to run his race. Cavitie never threatened in a handicap at Kempton last time but had landed a double on the all-weather before that, while Co Dependent will be much more at home on this surface after finishing last in all three recent starts on turf. Atlantic Beach may prefer 5f these days, but Irish raider Enigma Code could figure dropped in class.
