ADDIKT has improved for the change of stable and has won both starts this year over today's trip at Kempton. He could prove the one to beat if carrying over that form to the turf and Michael Scudamore's charge gets the nod. Boa looks too high in the weights now after winning twice at the start of the season, while Zafranagar is also in need of some respite from the handicapper. Big Sur went close at Kempton last month and along with Striding Edge looks best of the remainder.
