Kleitomachos and Daring Indian both won in a lesser grade last time, as did Stock Hill Fair, but should be prominent again while Art Scholar continues to hold his form well and has every chance if reproducing his run behind Opinion at Haydock a week ago over this longer trip. Sir Mark Prescott's runners in this type of race are always worth a second look and it's too early to write off Gassin Golf but GETABUZZ has already shown he handles track and trip and his latest third at York came in a better race. Tim Easterby's four-year-old may stay on too strongly for these.
