LOS NADIS looks to have every chance of following up his recent win over 2m1f at Ayr. He's been raised 5lb but this is less competitive and he can confirm running with Pokfulham. Itlaaq has been placed in better company of late but his previous efforts on soft ground make him hard to fancy while both of Tappanappa's previous wins have been over shorter trips on the Polytrack. Orsippus won't mind either the distance or the going but arrives badly out of sorts and Cape Rising may prove a bigger threat.
