Understory needs to find a bit more off his current mark, though he did finish a length ahead of Zaeem when runner-up here in November. He's also closely matched with LADY LUNCHALOT on last month's running at Kempton but the latter is taken to confirm superiority today after finishing only a length behind Archie Rice here a fortnight ago. Diletta Tommasa has been in good form at Wolverhampton and Raamz has a shout racing off a lower mark than when third at Sandown last summer, but this is much tougher than the race Night's Watch won here earlier in the month.
