NOT MY CHOICE is not an all weather regular but scored rather comfortably here last autumn and showed he's ready to oblige again after posting a good effort when third to Mujaadel at Catterick in a decent contest. He can defy topweight, although there are a number of dangers in the best race on the card. Cavitie is in good heart at present but has yet to race over this specialist seven furlong trip. He'll be close if the trip suits, whereas Polemica is proven over the distance and enjoys the Wolverhampton surface. Khajally is another with a good record here, having gained both career successes over course and distance and has been dropped 1lb for his latest effort.
