Lions Arch followed up his win at Lingfield with victory at Doncaster but may find the hat-trick beyond him off a 5lb higher mark. Al Mukhdam won well on his reappearance at Nottingham but was put up 7lb for that and this looks a stronger heat. ZAMOYSKI was given plenty to do at Windsor last month and was hampered when closing on the leaders. He could gain compensation here as Brooke's Bounty set a strong gallop when scoring at Ripon last time and may set up the race for the strong finishers.
