Spinning Cobblers has been competing at a higher level and has dropped 10lb since making his handicap debut though he's never run on soft going. Risk 'N' Reward has never raced on Turf but Venus Marina has been showing good pace over further including here on her penultimate outing. Jenny Sparks has been beaten in sellers recently though had Previous Acclaim behind last time but, in a very poor contest, TEMPLAR BOY is given the nod as he has looked in need of this sort of trip in his three runs at Southwell.
