SIR TREVOR has yet to win this year but has been threatening to do so on the Turf of late. Fourth at Redcar last time, this is easier and he gets the token vote in a wide-open contest. Almaas has slipped down the weights and will be taking advantage soon while Kinglami usually runs his race here but over shorter trips. Sunley Pride isn't out of this and Miss Dashwood can figure dropped in trip for her handicap debut. Treasured Dream is another open to improvement but Scrupul is struggling at present.
