Mark Johnston won this last year but Branston De Soto has been beaten a long way in his two starts to date. Palace Dragon has shown nothing so this should go to a newcomer and any one of the quartet could take the spoils. Farquhar and Spanish Artist are both by Archipenko out of middle-distance mares and, like the stoutly-bred Kashmiri Sunset, look certain to be suited by this trip. BISHOP OF RUSCOMBE is a half-brother to several winners and with his stable in such good form he can make a successful start.
