Scott Dixon ended a long barren spell with a winner at Kempton last week so the lightly-raced Lucky Mountain may be capable of better. After dead-heating with stablemate Amelia Hull, Salute To Seville ran well in a handicap here on Saturday and wasn't beaten far. She can go close with her low weight while Abraq is by no means out of this as he didn't get the clearest of runs at Lingfield last time. Naru battled on to catch Good Evans over the track and trip a fortnight ago and will almost certainly improve again but Walter White's only success came in a seller though he did go well in a Lingfield handicap last time. GOOD SPEECH had shown promise in maiden company on Turf before making a winning start in a handicap here last month. She's been raised 6lb but looks potentially better than a 63-rated handicapper and can follow up.
