RAWAKI wasn't disgraced in a tougher handicap than this at Ascot last time. Andrew Balding's charge won on his racecourse debut on Polytrack and gets the nod to return to winning ways here. A few of these can figure if forgiven recent below-par efforts including Wolverhampton winner Kuda Huraa and Hurricane Spirit, well beaten on the dirt in Sweden last time but successful in both previous starts on this surface. Beat Route and Urban Space are others capable of better but On Khee and Admirable Duque look high enough in the weights at present.
