This is tougher than the claimer Legal Legacy won on the Polytrack last time while Kingswinford never figured at Chester on his latest start having won over 6f here before that. The Guru Of Gloom won three times last year and can reverse latest running with Kakapuka at Lingfield while top weight and last September's Salisbury winner Golden Delicious isn't out of this on her return to action. However, MINGUN BELL is only a couple of pound higher than scoring over C&D last season and with improvement expected for a recent comeback run at Catterick, Ed de Giles charge can return to winning ways.
