The combination of a falling handicap mark and Kieren Fallon in the saddle suggests Mountain Range is one to keep an eye on despite his poor recent form. Operettist is another who has dropped markedly in the ratings and has his first start for Tony Carroll, who can get one ready. The veteran Iguacu was in good form on quick ground last summer and is well enough treated on his return to Turf but this can go to the consistent STAG HILL, who scored from this mark at Kempton last month.Royal Sea has had a break but looks best of the remainder.
