SAFARI GUIDE is a maiden from 14 starts, but was a much improved second last time out and gets the vote. The trainer is 0-3 with runners on the turf here this year but has a good opportunity with one starting to find form. Art Market has won here previously and is worth considering despite a relatively modest run at Sandown. However, the handicapper appears to have his measure. Accountable and Resuscitator were separated by under a length in second and third respectively at Folkestone latest. They are likely to be close once again, although connections look for improvement from Resuscitator with a first time visor.
