None of these look a standout so a big chance is taken with BUGSY'S BOY. George Baker's runner is returning from a break but goes well fresh and only 2lb worse off than when a close second at Newbury over this trip; he should go well. Zelos Diktator looks sure to be popular with Richard Hughes up but he looks a bit of a near miss merchant and is yet to prove stamina for this far on the level. Mohanad has no such trip worries but is up in the weights despite being well held in second last time. A tricky race but Bugsy's Boy might represent some value.
