For Life faces tougher opposition than his most recent success here whilst Kanaf is passed up after losing to much lower rated rivals at Ascot. We take a chance with EDGEWATER who runs off a competitive weight. The selection appears to have turned a corner after a much better showing last time at Kempton and he won here off a higher mark in December. Ryan Moore is a positive jockey booking on board the gelded son of Bahamian Bounty and he gets the vote ahead of likely players Ray Of Joy and Al Gillani.
