Cosmic Chatter tries 6f for the first time but must be thereabouts if lasting home as he ran well here on his reappearance. Body And Soul was a progressive two-year-old, winning a Listed race at Redcar in October, and will have come on for her fifth at Ripon while Heaven's Guest and Moviesta are chasing hat-tricks. Near the foot of the weights, Sandown third Barracuda Boy catches the eye and the quirky Odooj is the type to respond to first-time blinkers. As well as Heaven's Guest, Richard Fahey also saddles Polski Max and course and distance winner Mary's Daughter while Mark Johnston has Heavy Metal and Storm Moon in the line-up. Hasopop has a touch of class but is giving 13lb to LEWISHAM, who gets a tentative vote. Very highly tried in his first season, he didn't beat much at Kempton last time but may have been let in lightly here and is a bit less exposed than most of these. Lucky Beggar rarely runs a bad race and has place claims again.
