It's hard to make a strong case for any of these but BOY THE BELL won over track and trip in January. He's been beaten in a couple of subsequent starts but this looks easier than his recent tasks. Harvest Mist also won here earlier in the year and Robert Tart's 7lb claim gives him a chance but Michael's Nook has failed to figure off higher marks since winning at Kempton. The veteran Dvinksy has slipped down to a tempting mark while Blue Noodles, Cadmium Loch and The Noble Ord are all capable at this level on their day.
