Edgware Road and Flag Of Glory both have the ability to figure in a race like this. Belle Park beat Urban Space on similar going over track and trip in May and is a rare runner on the Flat for Victor Dartnall, though the runner-up is 6lb better off now and last Sunday's second at Windsor hinted at a return to form. ARISTOCRACY has been knocking on the door again lately and it was good to soft ground when he was beaten less than a length in a higher grade at Yarmouth last week. A repeat effort here may well suffice.
