Atlantic Story has won 11 times on the Polytrack and would have made short work of these in his heyday. But how much ability he retains after a lengthy absence is open to conjecture. Unlimited is usually thereabouts in this grade and will be pressing for a place again while Qeethaara won four times at Kempton between January and March and has her sights lowered here. BAWAARDI appears to have the best recent form, however, having beaten Unlimited in a C&D seller three runs ago. Not disgraced in better company at Haydock and Ayr since, he can get back to winning ways today. St Oswald was in decent form earlier in the year but seems to reserve his best for the Fibresand.
