Zuzu Angel drops into this grade for the first time but has had plenty of chances and struggles to see out this trip. Arctic Galaxy is obviously one of his yard's lesser lights but must have a chance at this lowly level and he makes more appeal than Joy To The World, still beaten 10 lengths when second at Lingfield last time. Arte Del Calcio won in the mud at Lingfield in July and has to be respected but we'll gamble on a return to form from PRIESTLEY'S REWARD. Elaine Burke's gelding is a regular in this grade but more reliable than most and the usual cheekpieces are back on after he disappointed over a longer trip at Beverley last time without them.
