Mister Philson was only beaten two lengths by Ultra Du Chatelet over 3m1f here last week but the drop in distance might be a problem for this doughty stayer and he has another 4lb extra to carry. Preference is for SETTLEDOUTOFCOURT, who is probably high enough in the weights himself but has already proved effective over course and distance. Mister Wall Street's only two victories have come at this track but he's been well below par lately and neither Slew Charm nor My Dads Horse have shown much recently.
