Ancient Greece's latest winning form was on Jersey in the spring and it will be a surprise if he's good enough here. Salisbury winner Living Leader couldn't handle the weight rise at Sandown next time while the handicapper appears to have caught up with Edgware Road, but Victor's Bet impressed under Ella Smith in a similar contest at Newbury three weeks ago and the Spanish import shouldn't be ignored. PLAY STREET wandered around when coming under pressure at Windsor last time but he'll get strong handling here from James Harding and can get back to winning ways.
