None of these make much appeal so THE SCUTTLER is only a speculative selection as he was taking on higher rated horses when second in a classified event at Yarmouth last time and is 8lb lower than when scoring at Lingfield in March. Fair Comment is dropped in class and may finish closer as a result but Penang Power has something to prove after running a shocker when favourite at Brighton recently. Something Magic has the past form to figure but it's difficult to make a serious case for any of the remainder.
