EDGWARE ROAD reverts to the Flat after couple of outings over timber and went close over C&D the last time he raced at this track. This looks less competitive and Paul Rich's charge gets the vote. Beggars Belief has been raised another 4lb for finishing second here last time and is now 9lb higher than January's win at Wolverhampton, while Wisecraic has been running well in sellers and was disqualified having passed the post first at Lingfield last time. The latter is closely matched with Arkaim on that form, but Oneiric looks a bigger threat as the handicapper has given her a chance by dropping her 5lb after a recent third in maiden company.
