BUNCE has only raced over today's trip twice, winning at Goodwood last year and being narrowly beaten at Lingfield in March. He looks up to landing this on today's favourable terms. Nezami finished runner-up over C&D a fortnight ago, but he has a bit to find at the weights with both Frognal and Guilded Warrior, while Ancient Greece and Gessabelle also look up against it. Woodcote Place has done all his winning over today's trip and he could prove the main threat with a recent comeback run under his belt.
