Jacob Cats came up just short at Goodwood last time when trying to land a hat-trick after a couple of wins at Sandown. Another bold bid looks likely from him but recent Ascot winner Redvers has been upped another 6lb and Rakaan is getting no closer despite slipping down the weights. EMILIO LARGO scored at Ripon the last time he encountered fast ground and after another good effort in soft going at Newmarket, Sir Henry Cecil's charge is taken to return to winning ways in an open contest. Bronze Prince isn't out of this dropped in class and George Guru would figure if reproducing his best form on the Polytrack.
