AGLAOPHONOS has been showing promise in maidens and a step up in trip looked as though it would suit at Windsor last time. Roger Varian's gelding can open his account though Woody Bay will be a danger, despite being raised 6lb for a Nottingham win and being more exposed. Wellingrove has been tried over a variety of trips but wasn't beaten far over 1m1f at Hamilton last time and Visit Copenhagen was third over this trip at Haydock earlier this month. Beau Select won over 7f at Lingfield a year ago but has struggled to add to that since.
