Plenty of this 17-strong field arrive in top form with five seeking to follow up recent wins. Gaul Wood carries a penalty for scoring at Windsor on Monday but was behind Roserrow here earlier. The latter is on a hat-trick of course and distance victories, though may struggle to confirm latest running with Danchai on slightly worse terms. Prince Of Johanne often runs well in this big-field handicaps while Asatir gamely held off favourite Rockalong at Salisbury 10 days ago, though there shouldn't be much to choose between the pair at today's weights. Capaill Liath and Postscript both have more to do than when scoring a couple of weeks ago while Tigers Tale keeps finding one too good. We like the three-year-olds against the older handicappers in this with WENTWORTH due a change of luck. He's met trouble in-running in both starts this year and looks better treated than Windhoek, despite the latter's valiant efforts in strong company the last twice.
