The three-year-old Priestley's Reward is relatively lightly raced on the all-weather and has every chance here on his best form, though has arguably shown that over shorter trips previously. MOUNT ABORA drops into a seller for the first time since only going down by a short-head on Turf here in July. She wasn't beaten far over 1m2f in a handicap on this track earlier in the month and looks the one to beat today, though Eagle Nebula has also been taking on better opposition lately and should make his presence felt.
