The majority of the runners have to prove themselves on soft ground so the market should be scoured for clues. Rezwaan is back down to a fair mark and has won on soft so deserves consideration if the betting suggests that his new yard have got him back firing on all cylinders but the suggestion is LUTINE CHARLIE. His recent winning has been on top of the ground but he showed form with cut as a juvenile, escapes a penalty for his win at Bath and can complete his hat-trick. Edition's pedigree suggests that he will be able to cope with testing conditions but he still has that to prove, Another Magic Man needs to improve for the step back up in trip and Profligate to bounce back from a poor run unlike Prince Apollo but he may find this shorter trip against him.
