Several of these enter the fray in very good form with Victorian Number going for his fourth success in his last five and likely to take some beating with just a 5lb rise for his latest success. Lady Sylvia won a better handicap than this at Salisbury last week and still looks well handicapped while Mishrif has been performing well enough to consider under Richard Hughes. ARCADIAN LEGEND caught the eye on her debut at Yarmouth and made no mistake when odds-on for a maiden at Lingfield. She'll probably turn out to be better than a 64-rated performer and can continue her progress by taking this. Red Tulip narrowly gained her first success on this track but a 6lb rise makes this more difficult.
