Major Muscari will be popular again after a string of consistent recent efforts but his racing style makes him difficult to win with as he needs to be produced late. It's tempting to give him another chance and he seems sure to be competitive but JUSTICE PLEASING is preferred. A regular at this new all-weather venue, he goes well for Ben Sanderson and may repeat his course and distance win of mid-December. Table Manners looks a major contender under the promising Hollie Doyle, likewise the consistent Canford Belle who ties in closely with the selection on running here in December.
