A couple of these stand out on official ratings. Lucky Beggar was placed in Listed company at York last time and Jillnextdoor is expected to reverse recent running on much better terms with Redcar's Two-Year-old Trophy winner Body And Soul and fourth-placed Baddilini. However, TAAYEL followed up a debut win at Yarmouth with a third to Moohaajimin the Group 2 Mill Reef at Newbury last month. That's the best form on offer and he can score here if handling the soft ground. The remainder have some catching up to do although the Hannon pair, Emell and Dashing David, are making steady progress.
