This should prove a straightforward task for QUICK WIT. Clear at the weights on today's terms, the Godolphin colt chased home Baltic Knight in a Listed race at York last time and a similar effort should see him home and dry. Beacon Lodge and Galician are closely matched on official figures with the latter just preferred despite a below-par effort at Newcastle last week. Bix is easily dismissed but the fourth-placed prize money is his for the taking.
