Verdict

The quirky Kingscroft could play a part here if in the mood though, like Albaqaa, Music In The Rain and veteran Harrison George, he's been done no favours by the draw. Modern Tutor is unexposed and should strip fitter for last month's run at Newbury and Best Trip won over 7f at Catterick and should stay the extra on this sharp track. Docofthebay and Alejandro are others to consider but FREE SPIN won over a mile at Dundalk last year and is weighted to reverse Kempton running in January with Light From Mars. He has the pace to take advantage of a decent draw and can get back to winning ways here.
