Hierarch scored over 7f at Brighton three weeks ago and the runner-up has franked the form since. He should be thereabouts again but HAIL PROMENADER is preferred. The latter failed to figure in heavy going over 7f at Chepstow last time but won over a mile at the same track before that and can reverse latest running with both Douze Points and Rough Rock. Marvo won over a longer trip on the Polytrack earlier this year, with Conducting behind, while the returning Beauchamp Zero won't need much improvement to get involved on his handicap debut.
