Verdict

DESERT ICON won a shade cosily on the turf at Lingfield last time and this looks easier than trying to follow up in a handicap. He's preferred to Nezami, who didn't cut much ice on his return to today's trip over C&D last time and Co Dependent also has a bit to find on the evidence of his recent fourth at this track. Grandmas Dream tends to find at least one too good whatever company she runs in, while Frognal and Steelcut both ran shockers on their latest starts but are better than that.
