SECRET SUCCESS won here last month and found only one too good in better company than this at Newmarket last time. He's preferred to Aqua Ardens, who won a claimer at Epsom on his latest start. Lady Crossmar also won at Epsom last time and looks a bigger threat despite a 5lb rise while Charter was placed in all four starts last season and can also figure if retaining his ability. Dynaglow and New Leyf could make the frame if back to their best.
