This looks between RANGI and Secret Rebel as they both step up in trip. The latter found the progressive Ready too good when fourth over 7f at Lingfield last time and looks sure to make another bold bid but John Gosden's colt just gets the vote. He was having his first start since August when runner-up here three weeks ago and William Buick is back on board today. Kelvingrove was well beaten last time having shown promise on his Newmarket debut while Dusky Lark and Atlantis City look likely improvers. Ajman Bridge cost 125,000gns and is a newcomer to note.
