Verdict

It catches the eye that Roger Varian sends WEST DRIVE north following his Windsor victory and he could be set to follow up here off just a 4lb higher mark. Andrea Atzeni rides and blinkers return instead of the cheekpieces which were worn last time and that could eke out the required improvement to make light of the extra weight burden. Brian Ellison has won this in the past and I Am Not Here could be one he has laid out for this prize. He has tuned up for this over a trip far too short at Haydock last time and that should have him spot on for this with Ben Robinson employed in the plate to take off a useful 5lb. Mukhayyam potentially left his challenge too late when flying home from a mile back in the Queen Mothers Cup at York and should confirm form with Chancery and Purple Rock who were further adrift that day.

Verdict

Plenty here with claims, including DANCE KING, who is on a decent mark and has shaped well on several occasions this season. Hampered when making headway at Ayr last time, he can gain ample compensation here. West Drive, Swaheen and I Am Not Here complete the shortlist.
