Wayward Glance drops in class back over hurdles but can be a tricky ride, though McCoy knows him well. Gilded Age and Molon Labe have a bit to prove after a break while Callhimwhatyouwant has been beaten in sellers lately over the smaller obstacles and chasing looks his game nowadays. Lodgician's victory at Cartmel last month was his first in three years so we'll give another chance to VEXILLUM. The four-year-old receives weight all round from more exposed rivals and should have enough about him to bounce back to form at this level.
