Archelao has had a couple of outings over 1m2f since scoring over today's trip at Lingfield. He's not easily dismissed while Secret Success has been running well over shorter trips and can figure if lasting home. Kindia and Moment In The Sun are getting no closer despite slipping down the weights and Bath winner Sonnetation failed to cope with a rise in the weights last time. CARRERA has yet to win but finished closer when third over track and trip last time and John Hills' charge gets a tentative vote.
