Pucon dead-heated for first with Nafa over track and trip last month and should be thereabouts again off only a 3lb higher mark. Charming went close at Yarmouth last time having slipped down the weights and she's another to consider but it could be the turn of DANGEROUS AGE today. She finished third in a higher grade race at Wolverhampton on her latest start and may find the necessary improvement with Ryan Moore taking over the reins for this. Both Spic 'n Span and Maltease Ah have something to find with Pucon on collateral form.
