Arctic Feeling bounced back to form with a victory over 6f at Epsom last time and an apprentice negates a 5lb rise in the weights. Rothesay Chancer beat Flash City and Bosun Breese at Musselburgh earlier this month with Tax Free back in fourth and it would be no surprise if any of that quartet made a bold bid in an open sprint. But a chance is taken on JEDWARD as he went very close to taking advantage of a slip down the weights when only beaten a head at Musselburgh last Saturday. He can confirm that running with both Midnight Dynamo and Crimson Knot in the process of going one better today.
