Arab League and Taikoo are both upped in the weights and in class after their recent victories, but at the top of the handicap, Right Stuff and Regal Park have claims off their current marks. Winning hurdler Kazzene is back on the Flat for the first time since leaving France and is hard to assess, but Newbury winner High On A Hill has every chance as does Gifted Leader. Lurking at the bottom of the weights is RED COURTIER, who showed signs of a revival when runner-up at Goodwood last week and has scope for further improvement over today's longer trip. Paul Cole's filly gets the nod to go one better here.
