It took MEYDAN STYLE 22 starts to get off the mark but he finally did so over C&D last time when running out a cosy winner. Bruce Hellier's charge can go in again now he's got his head in front. El Libertador scored here before failing to figure on the Fibresand and at Chepstow last time so could play a part, while better is expected from Annes Rocket given he's a pound lower than when winning here in October. Lily Wood could prove best of the remainder though Tudor Prince is starting to look well handicapped again.
