Knight's Parade has been more successful than All The Aces since arriving from the UK and Gordon Elliott's four-year-old should be a factor in this as he had Modem behind when runner-up to Ridestan at Galway. CELESTIAL PROSPECT has been in great form over hurdles this summer and returns to the Flat on a decent mark. Providing they go a decent gallop in this, Marti Brassil's gelding should be thereabouts and is preferred to recent winners Winter Lion and Bog War. Wither Hills' run at Galway suggests he's in the handicapper's grip now.
