Licence To Till decided to post one of his better efforts when winning at Haydock last time but he's hard to predict and a chance is taken on ASHIRI instead. He caught the eye making late progress at Newbury last time to eventually finish fourth and has plenty of scope for improvement. West End Lad threw in a bad one at Doncaster last time having won at the same track in March and Lady Chaparral makes more appeal on the back of her recent third in similar company. Veiled Applause has claims and the lightly-raced Cape Rising is better than his latest effort suggests.
