The top four in the weights can all be given a chance. Handwoven finished second at Yarmouth but has had plenty of chances while the form of Irish raider Helen's Armada is hard to assess after she finished third at Fairyhouse. Aran Sky went close at Nottingham before disappointing at the same track earlier this month so LIGHT OF ASIA may be the one to go with. He finished runner-up at Windsor on his handicap debut and Ed Dunlop's colt is taken to make the long journey north a worthwhile one.
