Arctic Lynx has been knocking on the door and looks to have a decent draw. However, he's gone up 5lb since running Dancing Freddy to a neck at Newmarket last month and has an extra furlong to cover here. Preference is for WE HAVE A DREAM, who won this easily last year off a 2lb higher mark and should be able to grab a prominent position from stall nine. He looked to be on the way back when third at Windsor 11 days ago. Close To The Edge and Poole Harbour come here off the back of respective victories at Newcastle and Kempton and the latter is lightly-raced but Bless You and Perfect Pastime has been a little disappointing so far this term.
