Verdict

Drawnfromthepast comes out best at the weights and this looks easier than the claimer at Lingfield he finished third in last time. However, he reportedly broke a blood vessel on that occasion and LUCKY ART looks a safer option. The latter has been beaten in decent handicaps of late but won a claimer at Kempton in October and beat today's rival Angelo Poliziano at Ripon before that. Red Cape had Riflessione behind over C&D in November and went in again over 6f here a week ago, while Hinton Admiral and Desert Strike also have the past form to figure in a wide-open claimer.
