No recent winning form on offer so the token vote goes to GALILEE CHAPEL on the strength of his recent second at this track. Aureolin Gulf should also figure after placing here last time when Bertie Blu Boy and Ellaal were both well beaten. The veteran Benandonner wasn't beaten that far despite finishing only eighth at Lingfield on his latest start, but it's a struggle to find any form worth a mention amongst the remainder's recent poor efforts.
