Glastonberry won over 6f here last Saturday and attempts this longer trip for the first time. CIRCUITOUS Is just preferred as he scored over 7f at Kempton earlier this month and won off a higher mark on the Turf in August. See The Storm is holding his form well though he's 7lb higher than last month's win at Yarmouth while Mango Music and Flamborough Breeze are other recent winners with claims. Rogue Reporter has found only one too good on his last couple of outings but remains winless in 16 starts now.
