Lightly-raced on Turf, UBETTERBEGOOD can compete off an 8lb lower mark back on this surface. He gets the nod after finishing a decent second in Class 2 company on the all-weather. Muhdiq is another racing off a lower mark despite scoring at Wolverhampton last month while Pandar has a couple of outings at the same track under his belt and has tumbled down the ratings. Arctic Lynx recorded his only win on Turf back in 2010 and Rebecca Romero remains 6lb higher than her latest win. Pal Of The Cat signed off last season with a surprise 20/1 success at Goodwood and makes more appeal on his return than Brighton winner Waseem Faris.
