DUKE COSIMO won over 6f here in June and has been competing in better company than this since. Today's drop in class could see him back to winning ways and he's preferred to the more exposed older horses. Ocean Legend was well beaten off today's mark last time having won over track and trip before that and Mr David's recent win at Wolverhampton came in a claimer. Lutine Bell has slipped down the weights but hasn't won since 2010 while Glanely could only manage fourth at Newbury last month on the back of a win at Wolverhampton.
