Spanish Plume won at Bath last time and should be thereabouts but EUSTON SQUARE is preferred. The latter won one of these events at Ripon by five lengths last month and Jamie Hamilton will be hoping to extend his lead in this year's amateur jockeys' championship by landing this. Automotive won under today's rider at Goodwood recently and Jack Gilligan went close on Shahrazad at Wolverhampton a fortnight ago. Ailsa Craig looks best of the rest.
