The quirky Hazelrigg could go well from his high draw but was a long way behind FRATELLINO at Ascot last month. Alan McCabe's charge has some very solid form over this trip this year and is dropped back to the minimum having finished third over an extra furlong at Newmarket last time. Kyleakin Lass isn't without a chance and Milton Bradley's pair, Solemn and Jarrow, have the ability to figure if in the mood but Pearl Blue, Noodles Blue Boy, Partner and Master Rooney will all have to come down the middle of the track and may suffer as a result. Burning Thread is on a lower mark than when successful at Musselburgh last year and is closely matched with the selection on recent form but can be hard to predict.
