Legal Legacy has been knocking on the door lately but is also starting to climb the weights again and could find a couple of younger rivals too strong on today's terms. Quadriga won a minor contest over 1m1f at Wolverhampton on his penultimate start before finishing fourth over the same course and distance. But we prefer SKIDBY MILL, who has gradually been getting her act together again and was far from disgraced over 7f at Kempton last time considering she was trapped wide throughout. Strategic Action looks to have a similar chance to Legal Legacy at the weights and may be best of the rest.
