Villa Royale is too inconsistent to get the call but her fifth in better company here last month gives her a chance. Pravda Street landed a seller on the Polytrack last time and steps up in trip while 1m2f winner Now My Sun also has something to prove over todays' distance. It was soft ground when FLY SOLO won at Thirsk in May and given he's gone well fresh before, Alan Swinbank's charge gets the vote on his return to action. Song Of The Siren and Discovery Bay are not without claims and make more appeal than recent Kempton winner Checkpoint.
