Verdict

A penalty may be the undoing of recent Wolverhampton winner Media Jury and ARTFUL LADY is preferred. The latter went close in better company over C&D on Saturday and can take advantage of the drop in class. Adaeze has been in better form of late and was placed in a seller last time while First Rebellion went close to recording only his second win in 27 starts when runner-up over track and trip last time and has the beating of Mr Optimistic on that running.
