A few of these have something to prove off their current marks. That includes all-weather winners Blazeofenchantment and Admiralofthesea along with Brighton winner Santo Prince. Intrigo beat Barbs Princess six lengths at Lingfield but came up short at Kempton last time and Benoni never looked like following up last season's Haydock win when a beaten favourite at Windsor. Striking Echo and Jontleman won their respective maidens on the Polytrack last time and REPETITION made a winning debut at Southwell. The least exposed in today's field, Kevin Ryan's charge gets the vote to go in again.
