Only 3lb separates these on official figures. Kinglami has held his form well since scoring over C&D in August and Wolverhampton winner Atlantis Crossing went close again last time. Frognal has a penalty for last week's narrow margin victory and Abhaath isn't out of this off his current mark. The Strig was only beaten a length and a half at Lingfield last time and can figure but the speculative vote goes the way of GOOD LUCK CHARM, third over a mile in similar company here on his latest start.
