A handful of these are likely to be fighting for the lead. Al Busayyir will be one of those as he made all at Redcar last time but is 8lb higher as he bids for a hat-trick. Double Bluff, Stars Over The Sea, Zampa Manos and What About Carlo have also made all the running before so it's not difficult to predict a hold-up horse taking advantage. Doncaster winner Hymenaios fits the bill but he was tailed off at Sandown in April while stablemates Yenhaab and Flippant both step up in trip. GALIZZI's late run just failed at Wolverhampton last time but he finished 10 lengths clear of the third and Michael Bell's colt may prove the answer in this opener.
