We investigate a class of vector ring spatial solitons that carry no net angular momentum. Specifically, we show analytically and numerically that the dominant low-frequency perturbations that typically disrupt ring solitons are suppressed for these solitons. By comparing our analytical and numerical results, we show that our simple analysis gives good qualitative predictions on the regions of stability for these beams.
