Tevez brought a long losing run to an end at Kempton earlier this month and promptly followed-up over track and trip. He remains well handicapped on his best form despite a further 5lb rise but SATWA STORY has more scope. The Godolphin colt bolted up in a maiden on the Polytrack last time and should have the measure of these with further progress expected. Mr David was beaten in a claimer last month while Noble Citizen has yet to show any improvement for a slide down the weights. Jonnie Skull beat Fantasy Gladiator over a mile here earlier in the month but has been well beaten since.
