There was cut in the ground when Cosseted finished second at Nottingham in May and connections will be hoping for some rain. The latter is just preferred to stablemate Glanely but Disco Inferno has strong claims on his latest effort at Haydock behind a Godolphin runner. Saeed Bin Suroor should have a good line on that form and LIFE PARTNER is expected to improve from a modest debut over track and trip and land this. Spirit Of Rio and the newcomer China Creek are others to note.
