Secret Success made all over a mile at Lingfield last month so this drop in trip may not prove too much of an inconvenience. But Hierarch has winning form over 7f and is only 2lb higher than when scoring at Wolverhampton in March. Masai Moon is best at Southwell and George Baker is a rare winner nowadays so it could pay to stick with INDUS VALLEY. The latter returned a cosy winner at Lingfield last time and an apprentice's 5lb allowance cancels out most of a rise in the weights.
