MARAAYILL is going the right way judged on his length defeat at Warwick earlier this month. He finished ahead of a subsequent winner and Marco Botti should have a good handle on the form as he trained the winner of the race at York in which Kafeel finished fourth. The latter should figure again while Ganges and Si Senor could also make their presence felt. Pure Amber is more exposed but the newcomer Westminster is worth a second glance in the betting. 2.20
