Soft ground and this kind of trip generally brings out the best in FIRST CLASS FAVOUR who is just 5lb higher than when scoring comfortably at Carlisle and Tim Easterby's filly can stage a repeat. Nezami made most on heavy ground at Chepstow and could hardly have won more easily so a 6lb rise doesn't look excessive. Copperwood had a neck to spare over McCool Bannanas when they were 1-2 at Newmarket in July and they meet on virtually the same terms though the latter is better drawn here. Sir Trevor's only victory to date came on very fast ground but the three-year-old King Of Paradise would prefer some rain.
