Itirrad's third to subsequent Old Newton Cup winner Number Theory at Haydock is arguably the best piece of recent form on offer here but doubts remain over whether he truly stays 1m4f. There are no stamina doubts surrounding Courtesy Call, however, who won easily over 2m on Polytrack last time and is on an upward curve. Address Unknown comes here off the back of a close second at Ascot and has to be thereabouts but Bayan always seems to find one too good and James Pollard could be out of his depth in this. Epsom third Significant Move could also struggle but BIOGRAPHER is worth another chance following an unlucky second at Lingfield. David Lanigan's three-year-old is lightly raced and should have more to offer.
