MUBTADI is now 16lb higher than when his winning run began but his successful young rider can claim 5lb and victory number five looks on the cards as he looked as good as ever at Lingfield last time. Ocean Legend makes a quick reappearance after another fine effort at Lingfield though he's now won nine races on the all-weather and none on Turf. Stormbound, a winner at Wolverhampton in January, was sent to Chantilly for a claimer last month but weakened quickly after showing good early pace. Hierarch is consistent enough though still 3lb higher than for his only victory on Turf at Brighton last summer but the ground has come right for Siouxperhero, twice a winner last summer and better for his recent return at Lingfield.
