Bumper winner I'm Fraam Govan did well to finish third at Ripon giving so much weight to younger horses but is facing the same problem in this. Breden has claims stepping up in trip on his return though he only raced in soft ground last term. A runner-up at Newmarket, DAWN OF EMPIRE is given another chance after disappointing at Nottingham last time and may be up to landing this unless one of the newcomers is above average. The latter are represented by the 300,000 euros filly Alegra who makes more appeal than Wall Street Boss and Mu'Ajiza.
