Plenty with decent claims in the closer. Boxing Shadows and Sewn Up both won in a higher grade last time though the latter drops back to the minimum trip today. There's little between Modern Lady and Windforpower on recent running at Kempton but Brighton winner Buy Art was well beaten on his reappearance when a long way behind runner-up Lager Time. Lead Role won over 6f here last month but has a bit to find with HAND IN GLOVE on earlier running and the latter makes most appeal on her handicap bow having scored over track and trip recently.
