Most of these have been kept busy over the summer but the likes of Jack The Gent, pulled up at Huntingdon last time, Lucky Landing and Temple Lord are taking on better opposition now. Spock did well to beat Royale's Charter at Worcester last month, however, while Castlelawn can be forgiven his latest run at Perth over a longer trip. DIAMOND FRONTIER found his form again in the spring and has won over track and trip off a higher mark in the past. John Dawson takes off 7lb in this and he could be capable of going close if fully wound-up. Kealigolane is preferred to Stagecoach Pearl and Granville Island of the others returning from a break.
