Cactus Valley scored at Sandown before his latest third at Warwick while Dulkashe won over C&D in May and will have needed last month's comeback run. Both can figure in this along with Ripon winner Zanotti, who ran below par in soft ground at Goodwood last time. However, SUNPASS got off the mark at Epsom 10 days ago when sluicing home by no less than 11 lengths and John Gosden's colt gets the vote to follow-up on his handicap debut.
