Meetings Man scored over hurdles before winning over 1m6f at Yarmouth so this longer trip should be no problem for him. Comedy House got the better of Honourable Knight over track and trip last time but the latter is weighted to reverse running with William Buick taking over the reins. It could pay to stick with OUR FOLLY in this, however, as he's been racing in better company on Turf and ran well again off today's mark at Newbury last time having landed a double over 2m earlier in the season. Tingo In The Tale attempts today's longer trip for the first time and could prove best of the rest.
