Prodigality is lightly raced and only went down by a short-head at Ripon last Saturday. He looks sure to be thereabouts while Khubala has won three times this year and probably wasn't suited by the drop back to 5f at Sandown last time. Rigoletto dead-heated with Masai Moon over C&D earlier this month but, along with First In Command, could find this too tough while Priceless Jewel has disappointed since winning at Kempton in May. Sohraab is starting to look well handicapped but so is CHEVETON, who is now 6lb lower than when winning last year's Ayr Silver Cup. He's been running a lot better than his form figures suggest this year and can bounce back to winning ways this afternoon.
