Tango Sky is a speedy sort but has a bit to find to overturn Windsor running in June with recent Sandown third Kyleakin Lass. Pearl Blue shouldn't be far away if reproducing her latest fourth at Doncaster while Bathwick Bear continues his slide down the weights though he hasn't managed to get his head in front since his two-year-old days. CHEVETON won the Ayr Silver Cup off an 8lb higher mark less than a year ago and has conditions to suit here. He's been running a bit better than his form figures suggests this season and could be poised to open his account for the year now. Sugar Beet looks best of the rest.
