Those at the top of the weights are struggling off their current marks, although Urban Dance and Zain Eagle have had just the one start this year and may yet come good. Llanarmon Lad belied his stating price at Epsom and went very close to catching Abseil last time. He's preferred to Sandown runner-up Tanseeb, but another chance goes to AJMANY. The soft ground may have been an excuse for a below par effort when fancied for the Zetland Gold Cup at Redcar last time and Luca Cumani's charge can prove that running all wrong in this.
