Plenty open to improvement and this looks wide-open. AL ARISH has as good a chance as any after finishing third on the Polytrack at Lingfield and Lady Cecil's charge gets the token vote. Certification has strong claims after a better effort at Ripon while Omnipresent couldn't live with an odds-on shot at Catterick last time but finished a street clear of the third. Mahdiyah made a promising debut at this track and should figure while the likes of Mount Macedon and Rancho Montoya don't have to find that much to find to get involved.
