It may be worth taking a chance with SILVERGLAS on his debut for William Knight. The gelding was a little disappointing on his final two starts for previous connections but the pick of last season's form stacks up well enough and he may just have a touch too much class for this opposition if back to his best. Sunley Spinalonga looks sure to run her race but holds no secrets from the handicapper whilst Tenessee still has a little to prove although he could conceivably progress for this longer trip. At Wits End and Lingfield Bound both have plenty to commend them, Blitzed holds obvious claims as he steps back up in trip whilst Chain Of Events is better than he was able to show last time and could go well if translating the pick of his turf form to the all-weather.
