In depth

Verdict

Waahej is due to go up 10lb for last week's runaway victory at Wolverhampton so should be thereabouts once again under 6lb penalty, but MEGALALA gets the nod. He made the most of a lower mark back on the all-weather to score easily over a shorter trip here last time, but won at Epsom over today's distance in August and can follow up. Shades Of Grey was all out to prevail at Newbury last month and is 4lb higher today, while Bennelong has done all his winning over shorter and, along with Rosco Flyer, has plenty to find with selection on latest running.
