Ghost Train was gaining only his second victory on his 28th start when just hanging on over 7f at Lingfield where he veered left when hitting the front. He's better over this trip and a 3lb rise shouldn't prove a problem. Time Medicean had dropped to a mark 20lb lower than his Turf rating when gaining his first all-weather success here a couple of weeks ago and though a 6lb rise looks harsh it will be a surprise if he doesn't get involved. New Rich has won three times over the track and trip since September but looked a bit weary on his latest start and SWEET TALKING GUY, who was only fourth behind him in February after being impeded at a crucial stage, can take his revenge and gain his second Polytrack success on just his sixth start. Foie Gras was also close up in that latter event and has since scored comfortably over the track and trip so he's a threat with Connor Beasley's claim a plus.
