A hard race to call with five recent winners all stepping up in trip. Kool Company scored at Leicester last month but stablemate Dougal has the stronger form with a five length victory at Brighton. However, the latter had earlier finished a length behind Windsor winner JUSTICE GOOD. David Elsworth trained the smart Justice Day to win this last year and his colt gets the vote to repeat the trick. Burtonwood and Bronze Maquette have some catching up to do to match the others while jockey bookings suggest the 200,000gns colt Four Seasons is preferred to Outlaw Country.
