Mongoose Alert failed to land the odds at Lingfield on Wednesday and will do well to confirm earlier form at this track with Realisation. The latter is dropped in class after finding Hidden Glory too good over 1m2f and will appreciate the return to a longer trip, but KINDLELIGHT SUN was far from disgraced on his return from a year's absence when fourth to Lovers Causeway at Kempton last month. A winner on his debut, Nick Littmoden's charge has scope for plenty of improvement and gets the vote. Straversjoy is upped in class and will do well to follow up her recent C&D victory.
