Electric Qatar has leading claims at the weights and was beaten only a short-head at Wolverhampton recently. But he's making his debut on this surface and HEARTSONG looks a safer bet. The latter never looked like catching the winner when runner-up here last time but finished ahead of Angel Poliziano, Dissent, Quality Art and Spic 'n Span and should go close with a similar effort. Fathom Five ended a long losing run over 6f here in November but hasn't threatened in a handful of outings since.
