CHISWICK BEY carries a penalty for last week's win at Carlisle but drops down a grade for this and gets a token vote in a wide-open affair. Jupiter Fidius is another recent winner but he'd prefer some cut in the ground and Broctune Papa Gio makes more appeal on his earlier close-up fourth at Leicester. Ted's Brother is not out of this off his current mark while Cape Samba and King Pin have been running well over track and trip of late. The Blue Banana won easily at Beverley last time but has been raised 10lb for that success.
