Michael Appleby may have been waiting for softer ground for Sioux Chieftain, a winner at Nottingham in April before decent efforts at Newmarket and York. He should improve but will need to have done so now on a 10lb higher mark than for his victory. Gioia Di Vita should be winning again soon though he's never scored on Turf and is unproven on this sort of ground. Rosairlie is likely to find this too short and Villa Royale seems a few pounds high SO ENTIHAA, who has generally raced in better company and showed a bit more promise at Carlisle last time, is given the verdict.
