Arty Campbell was third over track and trip in January and makes more appeal than recent course and distance runner-up Arashi in this grade. Shalambar has the beating of Mighty Mambo, Wild Desert and The Absent Mare on his latest second and has to go on the short-list along with Graylyn Ruby, who will appreciate the longer trip. But BRAMSHILL LASS takes a big drop in class and looks well up to defying her big weight as she's not been disgraced since landing a double here and at Lingfield in the autumn.
