Mangonel has the highest official rating of these but dropped away tamely after making the running at Fakenham last week and appears to have lost her way. Veteran De Luain Gorm is best watched after a lay-off while Tulia De Gravelle was pulled up on her hurdling debut here earlier this month. Sunshine Buddy appears to be improving with experience however and, like Knox Overstreet, appears in a seller for the first time today but so does EDGWARE ROAD, who is less exposed and will appreciate the better ground. Paul Rich's four-year-old wasn't disgraced on the Flat earlier this month and gets the vote.
