Swift Arrow won a couple of times over the winter but has looked to be in the handicapper's grip since. Anay Turge will need to improve again to complete his hat-trick while Amaury De Lusignan has a bit to prove at present. Court In Session could go close if back to his best, however, while a market move for Keki Buku would be significant and Lucy's Legend could figure off bottom weight. TINDARO likes good ground and a sharp track and also runs well fresh. Paul Webber's grey is fairly treated so gets the vote.
