Gworn was one of the fancied runners in last week's Spring Mile at Doncaster but was beaten even further than eighth-placed TELLOVOI. However, the latter had gone close to catching Whispering Warrior in a Class 2 handicap over course and distance previously and gets the vote to go one better in this. Party Royal wasn't far behind the selection at this track last time and has a shout while Silverware is a prolific course winner but usually comes unstuck at this level. Capo Rosso is preferred to Conry though he'll also need a bit more upped in class after scoring here in November.
