Basilica came out best in a Warwick seller last time and should go well again but Beat The Bell failed to land the odds in a similar contest at Yarmouth when last seen. CELTIC SULTAN just edges it at the weights as he drops down in class and can land this if anywhere near his best as Kingswinford and Zing Wing have been struggling of late and the newcomer Solars Sun makes little appeal making his debut at this level.
