Novellen Lad is the only last-time-out winner in the field and he looks to have every chance once again after winning at Newbury with Judd Street well behind. Lutine Bell has place claims off his current mark and Beat The Bell could also figure back up in trip. Having won his previous six starts, the handicapper may have finally caught up with Kuanyao judged on his well-beaten comeback run at Ascot while Swilly Ferry and Love Delta remain well below their best. ENDERBY SPIRIT returned to action with a win at Doncaster and though he never threatened in better company at York last time this is more his level and he gets the vote.
