Starlife and Millie O'Brien both represent powerful NH yards but have a bit to prove, even at this lowly level. Majestic Bull appears on the downgrade and needs a softer surface while Yabora's latest run was in a point-to-point. SOVEREIGN SPIRIT finished behind Yabora at Wincanton last month but will have needed that. He's been a regular winner in this grade down the years and there is no reason why he won't go close today. The Good Guy and Aim looks the pick of the remainder.
