Revered Citizen looks sure to make a bold bid on the back of his close-up second at Kempton last month. He's likely to start a short-price here and makes more appeal than stablemate Caption but NOBLE SILK could prove better value as he looks to have just as good a chance. Lucy Wadham's charge was beaten less than a length at Newcastle last time and makes more appeal on that running than recent Kempton fourth Keeping Time. Miss Thea and Friends Of Ama Gi have shown little to recommend them so far.
