Sir Boss went close over a longer trip here on his penultimate start but Beat Route is 10lb higher than when scoring at Newbury in June. If I Were A Boy has claims off her current mark and Royal Dutch could be in the mix back on Polytrack. However, a chance is taken on WHITBY JET. He hasn't scored for over a year but showed signs of a return to form on the Turf at Lingfield last time and an apprentice's 5lb claim may tip the balance in his favour today.
