DRAWNFROMTHEPAST is a less than confident selection. He's the highest rated on BHA figures and comes out best at the weights but he's also wasted similar opportunities of late. He gets another chance, however, as he had today's rival Hinton Admiral behind when third over 5f here earlier this month and the latter has since won over 7f at Lingfield. Speedfit Girl looks next best on today's terms though she'll need a big step up on last week's reappearance run at Kempton, while My Lord has been below his best since returning to action in October.
