Serena Brotherton and City Ground teamed up to finish second over track and trip a fortnight ago. But EDGWARE ROAD arrives in even better form having won his last couple of starts under Brodie Hampson. He gets the vote despite the fact Flag Of Glory is weighted to reverse earlier running at Nottingham. Crouching Harry ended a long losing run at Cheptow last time but Mick Easterby has trained the last two winners of this so Unex Michelangelo could prove a bigger threat.
