CHEEKTOCHEEK just edges this at the weights but has the best form anyway. A winner at Yarmouth, he went close at Wolverhampton in September and found soft ground against him on his latest start. Marco Botti's charge should have enough to take care of Missing Agent, a winner over 7f here and Secret Symphony, runner-up in a claimer last time. Doctor's Gift showed little on his debut and the remaining pair are hard to fancy.
