Emerald Wilderness won this off a higher mark last year but he finished behind other Polytrack regulars True To Form and Mia's Boy at this track a fortnight ago. Apostle scored in this grade at Wolverhampton last time but has done all his winning over 7f while Verse Of Love was also placed over the same trip here last week. Rebellious Guest is 4lb higher and upped in class having won a shade cosily over track and trip last Saturday but Moonday Sun is interesting on his best form in France having only his second start for a new yard. Co-incidentally, ODYSSEE also has form in France including a second on the Polytrack at Chantilly in November. She's since joined Marco Botti and looks a sporting bet to make a winning start for the Newmarket trainer.
