Invisible Man finished with a late flourish to claim third place at Doncaster last time with Mabait a couple of lengths behind. He makes more appeal than Rassam but may find another stable companion in MASTEROFTHEROLLS too good. The latter was having his first start since March when runner-up at Kempton last month and is fresher and more open to improvement than most of today's rivals. After creditable efforts in Group races, Moone's My Name is now 17lb higher than when landing a handicap on the July course during the summer but Beacon Lodge should go well off his current mark. French import Be Perfect is another likely to improve off the back of a recent comeback run while Axiom is capable of making the frame.
