Watts Up Son beat last month's Pontefract winner Painted Tail by a length-and-a-quarter at Carlisle in June and is now a pound better off. He should confirm the form with Jason Hart again taking off 7lb. King Of Windsor bounced back to form with a staying-on second over a slightly shorter trip here 12 days ago and has to go on the short-list as he has the beating of both Hawdyerwheesht and High Resolution on that run but Schmooze is creeping up the weights, despite not winning. EUSTON SQUARE isn't easy to predict but is now 4lb lower than his last winning mark and this is his trip nowadays. If he's on a going day, this looks well within his range.
