The winner of a couple of Fibresand bumpers, PRICELESS ART was sent off favourite for his debut on the Flat here last month. He found one too good on that occasion, but finished clear of the remainder and can make amends by landing this. Kishanda went close behind course specialist La Estrella over C&D last month and a good effort over hurdles since suggests she can figure, while Nibani has bits of form on the Polytrack that gives him a chance. Maggie Aron wasn't disgraced on her debut on the Flat at Wolverhampton and looks best of the rest.
