What A Warrior would be a serious contender in this if able to reproduce his third to Houblon Des Obeaux at Ascot in December off a 7lb higher mark. Bold Perk is capable of going well fresh while the versatile Divine Intavention is usually thereabouts. Take The Mick won over 3m here in February, though is still 11lb higher. TALKONTHESTREET is still learning his trade but his narrow defeat of Royale Knight over 3m4f at Stratford reads well and he can defy a 6lb higher mark here as Boyfromnowhere is likely to find this ground much too lively.
