Ree's Rascal has been raised 7lb for his Newbury success but Nathan Alison again takes off 5lb and Jim Boyle's grey is unlikely to be far away. Kieren Fallon is an interesting booking for the potentially well-treated Mabait and he's preferred to stablemate Postscript. Starwatch is a course specialist but is much better on an easy surface and Evident needs to improve on two runs this year if he's to add to his one victory to date. BOWIE BOY was having his first run on Turf when only beaten a length by Halation at Sandown 11 days ago - a repeat of that effort would probably suffice here.
