Jolly Roger won a seller on the Flat in 2010 but has been jumping since and rattled up a six-timer over hurdles earlier this year. He'll go close if transferring that progress back to this code while the consistent Dancing Primo also has claims on her belated seasonal debut. Know No Fear recorded his recent double over a mile and that's the longest trip he's won over so far while Bute Street steps up a grade after landing a couple of lowly handicaps at Bath last month. Foxhaven could make the frame but an open contest can go the way of SHADES OF GREY, who won with plenty to spare over C&D last week and is taken to defy a 6lb penalty.
