SAKHEE'S ROSE finished just ahead of Our Sweet Art in a similar contest over C&D last month when Compton Silver was well beaten. They meet on identical terms here so Roger Charlton's charge must be fancied to come out on top again and the pair can dominate against this lesser opposition. The latter's stablemate, Fit For A King, might have place claims but Lilly White will need to improve on what she's shown so far to figure and My Sweet Lord tries 6f on Polytrack for the first time. The others are difficult to recommend.
