REGENERATION makes most appeal in this handicap and he gets the vote over Whispering Spirit and Ingleby Princess. The selection was returning from a lengthy break when he ran well at Yarmouth in a race that has worked out well. He then scored at Lingfield last time out in cosy fashion and he looks one to stay on the right side of. Whispering Spirit won well at Catterick last time when she was good value for her winning margin. She should be suited by this surface and she can give the selection a race. Ingleby Princess chased home Paddy Bear at Catterick earlier in the month but she is making her all-weather debut today so it will be interesting to see how she fares on this surface. Ugenius has gone well here in the past but the yard are not exactly firing on all cylinders at present, and we will stick with Regeneration to lead them home.
