CHESIL BEACH may prove good enough in this. She ran well for third over 2m on the Polytrack last week and Rob Hornby's 7lb allowance could give her the edge in what looks a less competitive contest. Moscato looks a threat taking a further step up in trip after a comeback run at Bath. He's less exposed than the likes of High Love and Peacemaker, both placed on their latest starts. The latter finished ahead of Mr Smith at Sandown last time while Rock Of Leon looks best of the rest off his current mark.
