Following a promising debut at Newbury, Plover had no problem justifying a short price on the Polytrack and there should be more to come. Pythagorean failed to complete the hat-trick here last month but wasn't beaten far and should run his race again as he appears to have the beating of Skytrain on a line through Newmarket second Dance With Dragons. Kyllachy Rise won at Salisbury before an abortive trip to Royal Ascot but BEACH CLUB is our sporting suggestion for a tricky opener. The Haydock second might get an uncontested lead in this and could take some pegging back if that's the case.
