MAGIC OF REALITY made a bold bid to land a hat-trick when runner-up to Forgive at Newmarket. A similar effort should see her bang there at the finish once again. Ingleby Angel steps up a grade after scoring at Redcar and also has claims along with Lord Of The Dance, who finished ahead of Ginger jack when third in soft ground here three weeks ago. Talented Kid is less exposed than most and is another who could figure off his current mark and the veteran Axiom isn't out of this either on his best form.
