Ryan Moore rode Foxy Clarets to victory at Pontefract in June and won on Groundworker at Windsor in the same month. But he teams up with DINNERATMIDNIGHT for this and the latter is taken to shrug off a 5lb rise for winning at Lingfield last time. Basil Berry has been threatening to score over 7f of late and Piazon has been running well in tougher sprints over 5f recently. Major Jack has plenty of scope dropping down in class but Boy In The Bar is up another 4lb for finishing second at Pontefract. Highland Acclaim was due to run at Ascot yesterday.
