Abigails Angel set a modest pace on the lead at Kempton last time and duly made all. She won't be allowed to settle in front as easily in this company and CONDUCTING is fancied to take advantage. He had Menadati, Whodunit and Lord Theo all behind when third over C&D in January and Gay Kelleway's charge looks up to scoring off his current mark. Others who have shown signs of a resurgence of late include Minsky Mine and Potentiale with the latter preferred as he seems better suited to today's distance.
