Black Label has had plenty of chances and has something to find on today's terms with Tiptree Lace. But Bill Knight's charge ran a shocker at Goodwood last time and Nelson Of The Nile makes more appeal on his sixth at the same track. However, the latter's stablemate and newcomer JACK BEAR is ridden by Richard Hughes and he gets a purely speculative vote to make a winning start given his trainer knows his family well. Tipsy Star showed a bit more last time and Crown Of Aragon is another likely to improve.
