Patavium's rise in the weights for his recent win at Musselburgh puts him on a 5lb higher mark than when landing this race last year. A couple of lightly-raced three-year-olds could prove the ones to beat this time around and SENSE OF PRIDE looks the best of those. She was beaten only a length on her comeback at Sandown and the half-sister to the very smart Day Flight will relish this longer trip. Windsor runner-up Devoted is also unexposed and will be winning off her current mark soon. She makes more appeal than The Caped Crusader, who would prefer more cut, though Ollon could figure from the bottom of the weights.
