Mirrored was hit with a 9lb rise after winning easily at Ripon and finished last back at the same track on his latest start, well behind Osteopathic Remedy. The latter is up 6lb for that success but dropping down a grade and should figure once again. Master Of Arts ran well enough on his belated comeback over 1m2f and is worthy of consideration but OXFORD CHARLEY is preferred. Mikael Magnusson's colt has been highly tried since winning his maiden over a mile at Salisbury last term and back over the same trip for the first time since, he can land this. Mont Ras and Anton Chigurh were both placed on their latest outings over 7f and looks best of the rest.
