The Nifty Fox won this in 2009 and is steadily dropping to the sort of mark from which he can score again. Foxy Music has only run once here in 38 starts but loves a sharp track as he showed at Chester last time when runner-up to Duchess Dora with subsequent winner and today's rival Cruise Tothelimit behind. YOUR GIFTED is the definite form pick on her two runs in the past five days, beating three rivals at Haydock on Friday before running the race of her life in a strong sprint handicap at the Curragh on Sunday. She's well in here with a penalty but potential punters will need to factor in the travelling she has done. Lucky Art is generally consistent but looking a few pounds high in the weights and the three-year-old On The High Tops does best on quick ground.
