Harrison George has won over today's trip but not since 2010 and his double earlier in the year came over 6f. MAGIC CITY makes more appeal as the ground has been against him since landing hat trick during the summer and he's fancied to reverse recent running with I'm Back and come out best. He also has a few pound to spare on today's terms with Grey Mirage, although the latter should still make a bold bid and is preferred to Democretes and Kinglami, who both look up against it at the weights.
