Arctic Lynx may have been a shade unlucky not to follow up his Kempton win at Yarmouth as he fell out of the stalls. Robert Cowell's charge is only a pound higher here and preferred to returning stable companion R Woody. Kinglami is in good form while O'Gorman was successful over course and distance in June and should be thereabouts again. Bajan Bear picked up a penalty after winning at Leicester last week, however, and Ashpan Sam hasn't really fired in his last two starts. SCHOOL FEES got back to winning ways over this trip at Epsom last month and may find the improvement to defy a 4lb weight rise.
