Cadore has a shout returning to this lower grade but may prefer faster going. The Starboard Bow continues to slide down the weights and has shown nothing in a couple of starts since returning to action. SCIMON TEMPLAR was well beaten over a longer trip here last week but had only failed by a nose to catch Blake Dean over 2m at Newcastle on his penultimate start. He gets the nod on that form. Rosquero has plenty to find with the selection on Newcastle running, but the Irish challenger Robyn Rua is not without claims back over the smaller obstacles.
