Not too many have been impressing in recent starts but Victor Leudorum is one that can be excused that criticism as his Plumpton run represented a first outing since last October. Charlie Mann and Gavin Sheehan are both in sparkling form and the top weight could prove hard to beat this time. Coole River's profile over the past 18 months has been in-and-out since his return from injury but he remains capable of taking a hand. Mic's Delight is interesting off 112 considering he was operating off 135 two years ago but FULL OF BEANS earns the vote. There's a question mark about his ability at this level but four of five career wins have come on this tight track, he's in good form and receives plenty of weight from most of his rivals.
