GRIFFIN POINT won at Bath last month and was second over this course and distance in July. She arrives in better form than the majority of her rivals and can defy a 4lb weight rise. Reginald Claude and Spic 'n Span have lost their way again while Dangerous Age reserves her best for the Polytrack. Catflap finished last behind Spic 'n Span on her latest outing but holds Ryan Style on the book. The returning My Meteor prefers soft ground.
