EXTRATERRESTRIAL arrives in decent form and looks to have every chance given he won this contest last year. He landed a decent handicap at Doncaster last month and is preferred to recent course and distance third Naoise. Mishaal finished ahead of Al Muheer when going close over 7f at Beverley, though the latter may well reverse running over this longer trip, but King Pin looks out of contention on today's terms.
