STEELCUT was beaten only a head by Shawkantango, who runs in the previous race, at this track last time and had gone close in a seller over C&D before that with Mother Jones well behind. He's just preferred to Cape Of Storms who scored here in between a couple of modest efforts at Southwell. My Lord has gone close at Lingfield on a couple of occasions recently and can make his presence felt, while Sarah's Art has claims on his earlier third at Kempton.
