Attwaal, fourth to First Mohican at Doncaster last month, and Southwell second Spyder set the standard in this but the latter could find the shorter trip on this sharp track a problem. King's Warrior looks like he's improving with experience but we like the look of SAINT JOHN HENRY. David Pipe's four-year-old is making his racecourse debut but is by a prolific NH sire and is a half-brother to a bumper winner so shouldn't be short of pace. It will be a surprise if the winner doesn't come from the aforementioned.
