Four Winds, twice a winner for Michael Bell and runner-up in a Killarney Listed race when last seen in 2009, has obviously had his problems and is hard to side with after a mammoth absence. LIGHT FROM MARS ran quite well in the Listed Wulfruna Stakes at Wolverhampton in March after completing a double at Kempton. He's struggled in handicaps subsequently but take a big drop in class and can gain the tenth victory of his career. Mysterial is the only three-year-old in the line-up and he won a maiden over 7f on good to soft ground here in April but ran poorly on fast going at Goodwood subsequently. Newnton Lodge was beaten 15l when runner-up in a similar race at Leicester on Saturday.
