ARCHIE STEVENS latest win came over track and trip in January and he's been plying his trade in better company since then. He can make the most of today's advantageous terms and come out best. Work Ethic is another course winner but hasn't raced since December and Dream Vale is weighted to get the better of him in this. Annaley My Darling has little chance on these terms and Telamon was a tailed off last on his recent debut at Newbury.
