INDIAN ART is on a long losing run having been hard to keep right in recent years and was having only his second outing since 2009 when fourth over 6f here a fortnight ago. He looks to have retained enough ability to score at this level and is just preferred to Cheylesmore, who found 1m2f at this track too far last time and Spinning Ridge, who finished third at Lingfield on Monday. Alpha Tauri and Unlimited could figure if producing their best form but Finefrenzyrolling will need to step up on her recent efforts to figure and has a bit to find at the weights.
