Verdict

Posh Boy won twice on the Polytrack last year and will be winning again this term. Candy Kitten was sent off favourite at Lingfield last time but found a couple too good and Cathedral came up short by a couple of lengths at the same track earlier this month when Strong Conviction was well beaten. MINSTRELS GALLERY missed the whole of 2013 but had plummeted down the weights before that. He took advantage at Lingfield on his latest start and Lucy Wadham's charge gets the nod as he remains well treated on his best form despite a 6lb rise.
