Kantara Castle began in a seller but was third in a maiden at Kempton last month and should figure in this if staying the extra. Nice Arty has been placed in a maiden auction and a seller but isn't exactly consistent, a trait that could also be attached to THE WALLACE LINE. Mick Channon's gelding has been taking on slightly better company than this however and, as his best performances have come over this trip, he gets the nod ahead of Lingfield runner-up Penara and the less-exposed Techtycoon.
