Paul Webber does well with his runners on the Flat so the mare Danvilla is one to keep an eye on as she will have no problems with the trip. SILVER SAMBA won a maiden handicap over the course and distance in August and has run very well in both starts this year, especially when a close third in a better class handicap at Ascot last time when Bow To No One was just behind. She looks well treated and can get back to winning ways. Palazzo Bianco has only won once and looks to have plenty of weight but Astromagick and Cosimo De Medici are both past winners of this and the former in particular looks to have a fine chance of a repeat.
