Highland Colori is up 5lb for scoring over 6f on soft ground at Windsor and is likely to find conditions much faster here. Ongoodform doesn't win very often and has crept back up the weights after last week's Polytrack victory but Cape Rock was having his first start since 2010 when a close third at Kempton last month and is quite well handicapped on his best form. AMAZING AMORAY, a winner over 6f at Leicester a year ago, caught the eye on his comeback at Doncaster where he stayed on late behind Karaka Jack. There should be more to come from him and Ryan Moore is a positive booking. Snow Trooper was in good form last summer and reappeared to score at Lingfield. He couldn't handle the heavy ground at Sandown last time but wasn't disgraced and should go well. Angelic Upstart's two victories have been on Polytrack and he hasn't shown much on Turf so far but the lightly-raced Great Expectations is well enough handicapped if handling the faster conditions.
