The three recent winners will no doubt attract most interest in this. Snooky and Awake My Soul step up in trip after cosy victories at Yarmouth and Beverley respectively while Next Edition scored with something to spare over 1m1f at Musselburgh a week ago. Chookie Royale isn't out of this either as he drops back down in class but BE PERFECT is just preferred. The latter ran really well for third in a conditions race over a longer trip here last month and Dandy Nicholls' charge looks capable of landing this less competitive contest. Unex Michelangelo is another to consider in a wide-open race.
