FOREST EDGE continued his good progress with a victory at Lingfield last time. He's up 4lb for that but won with plenty in hand and can go in again. Titus Gent wasn't beaten far over the minimum trip last week and has done most of his winning over today's distance. He should figure along with O'Gorman, who had three of these behind when runner-up at Kempton recently. Song Of Parkes has a shout and the veteran Advanced is not easily dismissed off his current mark.
