Verdict

Woody Bay and Blazeofenchantment don't make much appeal but all of the remainder can be given a chance. Corn Snow won at Redcar last week and is up 5lb for that. He's still preferred to the more exposed Danz Choice and Beau Select but a tentative vote goes the way of SOARING SPIRITS. The latter went close on the Polytrack on a couple of occasions last season and looks on a decent mark for his handicap bow. Cash Is King should figure with a comeback at Yarmouth under his belt and Noble Gift is not easily dismissed although October's maiden win at Salisbury came in heavy ground.
