Arctic Stryker posted his best effort so far when fourth on the Polytrack here in May. He can figure with a decent apprentice helping his cause but SHENA'S DREAM is preferred. She scored on fast ground at Pontefract at the first time of asking but struggled when stepped up to a mile at Newbury last time. This shorter trip should suit and she can return to winning ways. Both Forest Edge and Al's Memory have gone backwards of late but Brighton winner The New Black could make the frame in this company.
