Lions Arch has a shout on his earlier win at Doncaster but hasn't raced since May. Well Painted finished ahead of Soaring Spirits at Kempton last time but his earlier victory at Windsor came over a longer trip. Course and distance winner Scottish Glen is upped in class along with the other recent winners Mahadee and The Great Gabrial, but SECRET BEAU went close when third in this grade over 7f at Kempton a week ago. Today's extra furlong will be no problem for David Evans' charge and he gets the nod to come out best here.

Scottish Glen 5-1 (9-7) Mid-division, headway over 1f out, ran on strongly to lead inside final furlong, driven out, won at Lingfield 1m hcp 0-75 (5) pol in Nov beating Maria's Choice (9-5) by 1 3/4l, 12 ran.
