Goring beat Harlequin Striker a length when winning at Newbury last time and that pair are closely matched but Them And Us can reverse earlier running at Newmarket on better terms with Mount Tahan. Explosive Lady finished ahead of Fieldsman at Ayr last time though neither looked like winning and it could pay to stick with FLYING HAMMER in this. The Haggas colt won a maiden at Chepstow before going in again on his handicap debut at Kempton and the hat-trick beckons. Khareer is also unexposed and could go well.
