The draw is likely to play a part in this and Dr Red Eye, Rusty Rocket and Secret Look have probably been unlucky in that respect. The latter may also struggle to last home, even around here. Laffan has been well handicapped for a while but invariably finds trouble in-running while Snow Bay may struggle to dominate from stall nine and Chosen Character looks to be high enough in the weights. King Of Eden and Verse Of Love have each-way claims but ZACYNTHUS may be worth another chance back over his best trip having being outpaced over 6f at Ripon last time. He can reverse earlier Newmarket running with The Confessor on fractionally better terms and open his seasonal account.
