DANGEROUS AGE was only beaten a length in a Class 2 sprint over track and trip last month. A similar effort in this company should see John Hills' charge back to winning ways. Muhdiq also has claims despite finding the selection too good last time while Sir Geoffrey has already recorded three wins this year, though all three of them came at Southwell. We'll Deal Again wasn't disgraced at Lingfield on his first start since April and makes most appeal of the remainder given the 2011 Norfolk Stakes winner Bapak Chinta continued to regress last year.
