Live Dangerously has yet to win but has gone close on several occasions and should be in the firing-line once again. But top weight MISHAAL is preferred given he scored over track and trip in September and can effectively race off a lower mark today with Jacob Butterfield's allowance taken into consideration. Next Door's recent second came in a lowly seller and Joyful Sound looks to have stronger claims after a good effort over a longer trip at Beverley last time. Fabled City has tumbled down the weights and could bounce back at any time.
