Skytrain showed good battling qualities to regain the lead and score by a neck at Musselburgh last month. He's up 5lb but should still confirm superiority with third-placed Yorkshireman and previous Lingfield winner, The Scuttler. Jabhaat won her maiden over track and trip in September but the form hasn't worked out and this is her first outing since then. ADMIRALOFTHESEA arrives on the back of a double at Kempton earlier this month. He scored more cosily than the narrow winning margin would suggest last time and Robert Eddery's charge can defy a penalty to land his hat-trick. It was soft ground when Emperatriz won at Newcastle last year and Bapak Pesta will need a big improvement on his handicap debut to figure.
