A double penalty proved beyond Thecornishcowboy last week but he's not out of this back over a longer trip while Nashville carries 6lb extra for Wednesday's win over 2m at this track. The latter's stablemate Gabrial's Hope posted a better effort last time but had earlier finished well behind third-placed ELYSIAN over C&D. Sir Michael Stoute's filly makes her handicap debut today and is expected to find the requisite improvement to get her head in front. Any Given Dream wasn't far behind Stand Guard over track and trip last week and can also figure.
