Mentalist was a little disappointing when favourite at Musselburgh last time and it's not certain that the drop in distance on this sharp track will suit. However, as a four-year-old, he gets all the allowances and shouldn't be far away. But COOL TOUCH ran Tiptoeaway to a length over this trip at Wetherby on his return from a lengthy absence. He's been given a few weeks to recover and can go one better here getting 5lb from Sublime Talent and My Brother Sylveste. Aviso and Get It On are out of form while the returning Oneforfun appears to have a bit to find at the weights.
