Rainford Glory arrives on the back of a win at Wolverhampton and Paddy's Saltantes was beaten only a length over 1m2f here last time. Both could make their presence felt, although preference is for one of the less-exposed types. It's too soon to write off Countess Lovelace as she has her first start since May and India's Song ran really well stepped up to this trip last time. But the latter has a bit to make up with MODEM, a runner-up over course and distance earlier this month and fancied to go one better in this.
