None of this bunch inspire confidence. INVIGILATOR is a speculative selection to come good after a better effort at Lingfield last time, though New Decade also posts the odd good effort and may figure and stablemate Divine Call continues to slide down the weights. Gaelic Wizard remains 6lb higher than when scoring here in September and Penbryn will do well to follow up last month's victory over track and trip off a higher mark. Steelcut and Consistant have the past form to get involved if in the mood.
