CRUCIS ABBEY won over course and distance before posting another good effort at Kempton last time. He looks the most likely to run his race and gets the nod on that basis. Yorksters Prince will have come on for his recent reappearance at this track and is looking to exploit a decent mark and Final Delivery is also well weighted on his best form, but hasn't shown that for some time. Under Par had been threatening to finally open his account before losing his way of late while both Justcallmehandsome and Monsieur Pontaven have a bit to find with the selection.
