ARCTIC WINGS hasn't raced on the Flat since finishing third to Bold Adventure over track and trip in February but he's been keeping decent company over jumps and may enjoy a fitness advantage over course specialist Mujamead. Sacco D'Oro was second over hurdles at Bangor earlier this month but is very one-paced and has a poor strike rate while Corvette is still 2lb higher than when scoring over 1m6f here in March. Hoar Frost is preferred to Feeling Peckish of the others.
