Only Orsenfoolsies is still improving judged on his cosy win at Ripon but has a further 8lb rise to contend with. Asteroidea also won at Ripon last time and she's been upped 7lb for that. ALEX VINO makes more appeal as he scored over 1m2f at Sandown on his latest start and this longer trip should not be a problem. The remainder look pretty exposed now, though Chevalgris is having only his second start of the year and may do better.
