Ermyn Flyer finished runner-up to Norwegian Reward, who runs in the previous race, last time and a good run from the latter would boost confidence in her chances. Great Charm can be given a chance off his current mark and Compton Bell is open to improvement with a belated reappearance run under his belt. PRECISION FIVE also has scope for further progress and Jeremy Gask's filly gets the nod having gone close on a couple of occasions since scoring at Lingfield in August. Huzzah could prove best of the rest.
