Midnight Feast won his maiden over C&D three weeks ago with Crew Cut behind and should make another bold bid, while Golden Tempest could also figure judged on her close-up third at Kempton last time. Sirius Project is not out of this if proving suited to today's shorter trip, while dual 6f winner Close To The Edge is consistent and is another with claims. However, in an open sprint, a chance is taken on PALAIS GLIDE. She scored on fast ground at Nottingham last month and can return to winning ways as long as the ground stays on the firm side of good.
