Secret Rebel was beaten only a head at Newbury last time and another bold bid looks likely from him. However, ADMIRABLE ART was only a half-length behind in the same race and with greater scope for improvement, Tony Carroll's charge gets the vote to turn the tables and come out best today. Girl Of Cadiz has found one too good on her last couple of starts but this is no easier and it could prove the same story today while Green Special was well beaten on his debut on Turf at Warwick last time.
