Judicious had landed a fast ground double over today's trip in July and wasn't disgraced over further last time. He should go close again, but another chance is given to HUNTER FORWARD. Luca Cumani's charge had also been in winning form before failing to see out 1m4f in testing ground at Newcastle last time and has plenty of scope for improvement. Landaman was an easy winner of his maiden and could figure on his handicap debut, but West End Lad has a bit to prove over the trip and Area Fifty One looks high enough in the weights now.
