VENETIAN VIEW is dropped in class after a couple of below-par efforts but his best form by far has been over C&D and he's the one to beat if running anywhere near the level of his victory here in October. Chalk And Cheese has a chance at the weights but today's longer trip is a concern and It's A Privilege makes more appeal as he's been placed over today's distance in the past. Silkee Supreme finished second on last year's debut over 6f but has struggled so far this season and the remainder make no appeal.
