In depth

Verdict

Gran Canaria Queen has been raised another 5lb and is stepping up a couple of grades in search of a four-timer but she's already beaten Feel The Heat, Findog and Mandalay King this season. Circuitous is another upped in class after scoring at Ayr while The Nifty Fox remains high enough in the weights judged on his recent form. CHESTER ARISTOCRAT is 6lb higher than when scoring over course and distance back in May but has improved since then. Dropping down in class for this, Eric Alston's charge can return to winning ways.
