Richard Fahey won this a year ago so Ixelles Diamond and Regiment are respected, especially the latter who is better drawn and looked very speedy when just touched off at Catterick. Tanseeb could have done without a 7lb rise for gaining his first victory at Nottingham but he's speedy and should get into the action. Grecian may have found the ground too fast at Ascot after an opening Polytrack victory and conditions here should be ideal though a low draw generally helps here. Kevin Ryan's pair Yorkshire Relish and Belayer have suffered with the draw but Speed The Plough is well berthed and Richard Hannon's pacey colt should be in the thick of the action. In a wide-open event, DEEDS NOT WORDS is given the nod as he was noted putting in strong late work over the minimum at York, is well drawn and has a nice racing weight with his rider's claim taken into consideration.
