CAMDONIAN was only beaten a nose on good to soft over course and distance in March and returned with a respectable fourth in handicap company at Uttoxeter. He is the clear form pick, though any market support for Choosethenews should be taken seriously as he won his only start between the flags by 25 lengths. Captain Westie will probably need this and the others are also likely to be playing for places only.
