SATWA STORY proved no match for market rival Narmin at Newmarket last month but the winner looks useful and Charlie Appleby's colt will be unlucky to come up against one as good here. He'll probably be a short price but should make it third-time lucky as stablemate Lawman's Thunder may need his reappearance following a lengthy absence. Living Desert is the danger on paper having contested better races of late, though he may have more chance of getting off the mark back in handicaps.
