Verdict

More of these arrive in better form than those in the first division including Kheley, though her best efforts have been on Fibresand at Southwell. LILY WOOD landed a maiden by eight lengths over the C&D last month before a decent run over 7f at Kempton. She couldn't quite get to Almaty Express back here last time but this looks within her capabilities. Metropolitan Chief is in very good heart as he showed over the C&D recently. He looks certain to get involved as does Memphis Man, whose defeat a week ago by Young Simon could get a boost from the winner in the opener. Anything Serena Brotherton rides in these races has to be respected though her mount, Royal Box, hasn't won since July 2009.
