Emkanaat got off the mark at Wolverhampton last time but is now fitted with a hood which suggests connections still aren't happy with his concentration levels. This is tougher, though Fathsta probably isn't the force of old and has little in hand on Offbeat Safaris on Epsom running. Choral was a little below par last time while Crew Cut's stamina will have to be taken on trust over this trip, though he was an unlucky loser over 6f here last month. FORKS had Schoolmaster behind when just lasting home over C&D two weeks ago and probably has a bit more to offer. He gets the nod though Konstantin would be a danger if recapturing his best.
