After three runs over 6f, Persidha looked worth a try over a mile at Brighton recently but weakened very quickly at around this trip and finished a long way behind. This is her first start in a seller and she should be thereabouts. Adranian landed a claimer over the C&D last month but has enough weight, a remark that also applies to The Dancing Lord, who tackles the trip for the first time. ARTISTS CORNER scored at this level at Redcar in August and was taking on slightly better company there earlier this month. She's no world-beater but could just be good enough, though Make Up looks a threat after two reasonable efforts at this level before being well beaten in a nursery and Le King Beau makes his debut in a seller.
