Mae Cigan could be the one here, First Friend and Sawwaah could provide most danger. The selection has shown promise in two races this season and looks to be improving. This gelding chased home I'm Spartacus at Nottingham earlier this month, with some in form rivals behind. With more improvement expected he does look hard to beat. First Friend has also put in two solid efforts recently and although the handicapper is reluctant to help he should still be in the shake up. The old timer Sawwaah is no back number, his last victory came over this trip at Lingfield and if things drop right he cannot be easily dismissed. The best of the others could be Azreme, but Mae Cigan looks to be going the right way and he gets our vote.
