Circumvent went very close over C&D last month when runner-up in the Churchill Stakes to Hunter's Light. However, he'll find it difficult taking up a good position from his wide draw here and third-placed Suits Me may reverse running. Ceilidh House posted a couple of solid efforts in Listed company last month and she'll be finishing with a late rattle if getting a clear run, while we may not have seen the best of Trade Storm yet as he steps up in trip. NAVAJO CHIEF has won twice over a mile this year with his victory at York in August standing out. He's returning from a lay-off but goes well fresh and Alan Jarvis' charge looks worth another try over today's longer distance. German import Lyssio has some smart form to his name and is worth noting on his debut for new connections.
