COLLECT ART gets a tentative vote in a wide-open sprint. He's been improving all year but it was his best effort yet when winning an apprentice race at Newmarket on Thursday and Andrew Haynes charge escapes a penalty for this quick reappearance. Music Festival scored over 7f here on his return to action but is just as effective over today's trip, while Methaaly is 6lb lower than when winning this in 2009 and he could figure. Grissom had Marvellous Value just behind when runner-up at Newcastle last month and both have claims in this contest.
