Frankie Dettori is back in action and partners ECO WARRIOR in the opener. The latter gets first-time blinkers having posted a poor effort on his handicap debut, but was doing his best work in the closing stages when runner-up at Wolverhampton before that and today's longer distance should suit. By contrast, dual hurdles winner Experimentalist may find 1m4f short enough back on the Flat and Wilhana looks a bigger threat on today's terms. Celtic Sunlight makes no appeal on breeding and the remainder are even harder to fancy.
