Asatir has done all his winning over shorter and flopped badly on his previous start at today's distance. Come On Blue Chip gives the impression this distance will suit but he too failed to figure when attempting it at Sandown last month. Tigers Tale and Magma are other winning milers with something to prove but Position has leading claims on his earlier win at Wolverhampton and Henry Clay can also be given a chance stepping up a grade. Inthar wears Godolphin's second colours despite winning his maiden over 1m2f on the Polytrack but a competitive race can go the way of VALIANT GIRL, an unlucky loser over today's trip at Newbury last month and open to further progress.
