The Hannon yard has won the last two renewals and has three runners in this with Tom Hark making most appeal of those. He attempted to make all when runner-up over 7f at Sandown last time but Pasticcio succeeded in making every yard to beat a subsequent winner on the Turf course at Lingfield last month. Epsom winner SCUTUM (NAP) has found things happening too quickly over 7f recently. But this longer trip will give him more time to find top gear and he gets the nod. Brighton maiden winner Shaakis failed to cope in Class 2 company at Goodwood earlier this month andPopeswood looks pretty exposed in this company.
Zora Seas was clear of the third when only beaten half-a-length over course and distance 10 days ago but that was still a comparatively disappointing effort from Brian Meehan's filly. Water Queen was another who failed to land the odds last time and had also been market leader when only fifth at Newmarket in May. RAMSHACKLE (NAP) was easy to back on debut at Headquarters in April but shaped very nicely in a race that's produced a host of winners. She returns from a break but should be good enough to beat these with the ex-French Brisk having her first start for David Evans.
The Hannon yard have won two of the last four and ACASTER MALBIS (NAP) can keep up the run in a very tricky race. He was only headed in the dying strides by Gibeon on soft going at Newmarket and today's quicker ground can enable him to hang on. Swot made a bright start behind Sawaahel over 6f at Headquarters and that will have brought him to concert pitch for this while Dissolution caught the eye at Newbury and will improve plenty for the experience. Able Sprit, Beach Samba, Brando, Golden Spun and Bright Flash all made fair debuts and any one of them could improve enough to take this while, of the newcomers, the superbly-bred Muffarreh catches the eye as he's related to numerous classy performers.
Recent Ayr winner Klynch and Half A Billion would prefer testing ground while both of Ralphy's Boy's wins this season have come over 7f. Bunceremains 9lb higher than last month's victory at Ayr and Lothair usually struggles in this grade. RED PIKE (NAP) scored over today's trip at Haydock back in May and has run well over 7f in a couple of subsequent starts. Bryan Smart's charge looks capable of winning off his current mark so gets the vote.
