Difficult to be confident about any of these. SOLVANNA never looked like winning when third here last month but she finished even closer at Kempton last time and may come out best. Lincolnrose also has course experience with a second over 5f here her best effort so far. Cool And Clear showed some improvement in heavy ground at Pontefract last time but Prince Rakan has yet to threaten. Apache Rising and Birdy Boy may prove best of the rest.
