MIDNIGHT APPEAL stays well and has his sights lowered after a third in a Grade 2 at Cheltenham and a good run behind a decent prospect at Bangor last time when Susquehanna River was tailed off. Dunlough Bay, also penalised, is another who's been quite highly tried and there was nothing wrong with his latest third at Warwick. The aforementioned pair should dominate as the others would have to leave previous form well behind to make any kind of impact.
