Beverley third Gambol is lightly raced and Arlecchino is usually thereabouts but struggles to get his head in front. That's not been a problem for Men Don't Cry or I'm Harry this year but the former has a penalty and a career-high mark to contend with now and the latter has done all of his winning at a lower level. MAGNOLIA RIDGE can be a little hit-and-miss but is only a pound higher than when scoring over 1m2f here in March and ran well when second at Redcar on his latest outing. He could just be a bit of value today as this might be too far for Charles De Mille.
