KNOW NO FEAR has held his form well this season. He looks the most likely to run his race having run into a place again on his latest start and gets the token vote in this. Qeethaara throws in the odd good performance when she feels like it and Iulus separated a couple of modest efforts with a third on the Polytrack. Applaude won at Southwell last month but reverted back to type when well beaten last time, but Iceblast has bits of form that give him a chance of sorts in this company off today's mark.
