Dana's Present remains in good form having gone close once again at Wolverhampton last week on the back of a win over C&D. He looks sure to make another bold bid and Valdaw is not without a chance on his recent third at this track. TWO SUGARS hasn't raced since July but was beaten only a length at Newmarket on that occasion and he gets the vote with Kieren Fallon's booking taking the eye. Warbond and Shaunas Spirit have the past form to figure if back to their best.
