This is tricky with a few looking to regain form. Asifa is one of them having posted a couple of woeful efforts so far this year while Viscount Vert has lost his way since landing a double earlier in the season. Presburg is hard to predict though good enough to win this if at his best, but Scrupul and Henry Clay look high enough in the weights at present. The returning Knave Of Clubs and recent Lingfield winner Niger could figure handicapping for the first time but MUGAZALA is just preferred. She can be forgiven her latest poor effort in heavy ground as she won impressively at Wolverhampton before that and it's too soon to write her off yet.
