Geoff Harker's Irish import Free Art has had numerous chances and may take a little time to settle into new surroundings. Striking The Wind almost snatched victory from Ektibaas here in April but ran poorly at Southwell, where he'd performed with credit earlier in the year, a week later. Power Punch returned to action as an odds-on chance here last month but didn't run up to expectations and is becoming disappointing. He should go close but DARK ISLE, a close second over this trip at Warwick in April. found 6f on the short side when a beaten favourite at Doncaster last month and can take this. Mark Johnston's newcomer Circle Of Angels is related to numerous winners and is also one to note.
