Magical Legend deserves to get his head in front following a string of consistent performances but may have to settle for a place at best again behind Lawney Hill's SARAHS GIFT, who can bounce back to winning ways having found trouble behind Macs Lad at Plumpton last time. Scots Dragoon has been a good servant to Nicky Henderson over the years but disappointed on his reappearance last month and of more interest may be Charlie Longsdon's Mister Watzisname, who was going well before falling at Towcester recently. Kim Bailey's Sonny Mullen made a promising reappearance at Ffos Las last month and has every chance racing off just a 1lb higher mark today but preference is just for Sarahs Gift.
