Knightly Escapade has a shout despite top weight as he steps back up in distance but Hit The Jackpot has been less than convincing in a couple of starts over todays' trip while Almost Gemini ran a shocker last time having rattled up a hat-trick on the all-weather before that. Hunters Belt makes more appeal stepping up from 1m5f at Ayr where he finished third but BIN SINGSPIEL went close over 1m4f last time and he gets the vote as he has more scope for improvement than most of these.
