Malicho only won a couple of minor races in France and finished last on her debut for new connections. Accession finished last on his only Polytrack start and hasn't won for two years but Whipper Snapper won in a similar grade race to this at Newbury and is just 4lb higher so has to be considered. Shaolin gained his second victory over 7f on this track earlier in the month and has scored over the trip at Lingfield so he's another on the short-list. Breakheart can usually be relied on to do his best and has won twice over the track and trip though not off a mark this high. Starlight Symphony was having only his second all-weather start when a close third in a Lingfield handicap last time but it's PRESUMIDO, who has never raced beyond 7f but has finished powerfully to win his last two races, who can score again as this trip should hold no terrors.
