Welsh Nayber is holding his form well and another bold bid is expected from last month's Polytrack winner but AMISTRESS looks set to get her head back in front. She's been getting steadily closer and this looks less competitive than her latest start at Bath where she finished third to Highland Duke. Swift Blade has claims on his best form, though may need another outing after finishing a well-beaten fourth on his reappearance, but Chatterati is not easily dismissed back on Turf after a poor effort at Kempton. Kelpie Blitz has started favourite for three of his last four starts and will oblige eventually but it may not be today.
