Napinda is worth noting given that, unlike most of these, she's actually won a race. But that was over 7f and she's been well beaten since so the speculative vote goes to SWORD OF THE LORD. The latter was beaten less than a length on his belated reappearance on the Turf track at Lingfield and a repeat should see him go very close. Fair Comment finished a runner-up at Brighton in between her more normal modest efforts but Tammuz and Lucilla failed to show any improvement on their respective handicap debuts. Red Tulip has finished a bit closer of late and is another to consider.
