Verdict

It's difficult to make a strong case for any of these. BARISTA went close on fast ground at Leicester recently but his fourth in soft going at Newmarket at the end of last season was a better effort and he can come out best with a repeat. Polytrack winner Royal Selection has yet to encounter slow ground though she went close when third over C&D last month while Norlander is unexposed and steadily improving. Swift Act and Nezami have the past form to figure but the remainder make no appeal.
