Safari Team won a seller at Lingfield last time and the drop back in trip should be no problem, but POYLE PUNCH is just preferred. He's less exposed, has the better draw and and won his maiden over 7f here back in May. Social Forum also won his maiden on Polytrack but is another with a wide draw to overcome, while Hugely Exciting landed a claimer at Lingfield last month and has a chance on that form. Exchange beat Whodathought at Salisbury in the summer and the latter has won at the same track since, but C&D winner Sky Diamond makes more appeal than both on this surface.
