Secret Seven's one good run was on fast ground at Newcastle but Poetic Lord has scored on soft ground in the UK and ran very well over hurdles at Tipperary a fortnight ago. Blue Ridge Lane is only 2lb higher than his last success but Wagadoogoochoochoo's only victory came over a mile and Bomber Jackson has only scored on Polytrack. It's difficult to know what to make of Sultana Belle, who easily landed a novice chase at Sedgefield earlier this month but has never been placed on the Flat so a chance is taken on WINSLOW ARIZONA. He won three races for Michael Bell in the UK and has dropped to a low enough mark to gain his first success for Tony Mullins.
