Consign continued his good progress with a win in soft ground at Ascot last month and is upped another 7lb for that. Tinghir landed a classified event at the same meeting at Ascot and should also go well. Myboyalfie had slipped down the handicap and was beaten only a head at Goodwood last time. But the assessor has promptly raised him back up the weights, while recent winners Party Royal and Cayuga are upped in class. Magistral and Buckstay have a shout and Wannabe King popped-up at 33/1 in this race last year. He beat CREDIT SWAP a short-head on that occasion but the latter was having his first start since when behind Tinghir at Ascot last month and is fancied to reverse running and go one better this time round.
