KING'S ROAD was beaten six lengths when runner-up over C&D last week but that's still looks the best form on offer in this lowly handicap. Anabel Murphy's charge gets the speculative vote. Azrag has joined Gerald Butler from Bahrain and fared well enough when third in a Redcar seller last month while the lightly-raced Spanish Trail may be capable of better stepping up in trip. The remainder arrive badly out of sorts though Quiet Appeal and Visions Of Johanna have the past form to figure.
