Gaelic Ice won a seller over 1m2f at Chepstow in August and will need to step up on his earlier attempts at this longer distance. SUDDEN WISH has yet to race over today's trip but got up late over 1m2f at Kempton on her penultimate outing and a chance is taken on Gary Moore's filly staying the extra. Megalala and Bennelong are both course and distance winners but the former arrives out of sorts and the latter hasn't raced since January. Opus is also returning from a lay-off and Like Clockwork has yet to show any improvement for his slide down the weights.
