Brighton winner Kicken Off would have claims if taking part but was engaged to run at Southwell yesterday. ARCHIE STEVENS gets a token vote in the former's likely absence as he takes a drop in class though Cracking Choice has claims on earlier placed efforts but has a bit to find with the selection on today's terms. Marmot Bay arrives on the back of a close-up third at Kempton and may figure and Millie N Aire has made the frame on her last three starts without looking like winning any of them.
