SNOW MAGIC wasn't unduly stretched when scoring over track and trip in July and can follow-up off a 4lb higher mark. She makes more appeal than Santefisio, who also won here last time but has a high draw to overcome today. Flowing Cape had to be dropped into claiming company to get his head back in front at Wolverhampton, but Den's Gift is not easily dismissed on the back of his recent second here. Red Somerset's win at this track in August came in plating company, but Ree's Rascal remains in good form and is another to consider.
