Galilee Chapel was beaten too far when second over C&D last week to have much confidence in here, but Arrow Lake and Rocky Reef both showed improved form on their latest starts and are worthy of consideration. A speculative vote goes to YEOMANOFTHEGUARD, who is less exposed than the main opposition having only his second start after finishing a promising third at Carlisle in June. Kinloch Castle is related to a couple of winners and is worth noting on his debut.
