Tasrih may have finished second at Kempton last time but was still beaten eight lengths. Ovatory has posted a couple of modest efforts over 6f while both Modem and Swehan were well beaten in soft ground last time. Better is expected from the latter stepping back down in trip but the remainder with experience are harder to fancy. Luca Cumani sent out a winning debutant on the all-weather earlier in the week and BOUCLIER may well be good enough in this as he's a half-brother to the high-class Beauty Parlour, who won the French 1000 Guineas.
