Ansells Pride won a seller at Lingfield last month with Beat The Bell behind. The latter may well reverse running on better terms here while C&D winner Bint Alzain can be given a shout back at this level. Recent Folkestone winner Drawnfromthepast has a tougher task on today's terms while Light From Mars, Sujet Bellagio and Victorian Bounty have been out of sorts in handicaps of late. TORRES DEL PAINE hasn't raced since February but has gone well fresh before and the three-time C&D winner may be up to winning this on his return to action.
