Nimiety is a leading contender after going close in a higher grade last time and Kieren Fallon was on board for his earlier win at Newmarket. The latter rode JAZZ MASTER to finish fourth over track and trip last month but it could pay to stick with Luca Cumani's three-year-old in this and he's taken to find the necessary improvement. Stiff Upper Lip and Oetzi have claims but both are looking to put recent below par runs behind them while Scottish Star and Bobbyscot posted better efforts on their latest outings with the latter preferred having tumbled down the weights of late.
