There's not much to choose between BANKABLE and Forgotten Voice on official figures and we'll side with Gary Moore's runner with Mark Johnston's Laa Rayb the only other with serious claims. This is definitely the selection's best trip with the five-year-old having scored four times from nine starts over it. He shaped well on his first start for new connections when chasing Campanologist home in the Winter Hill last time. He will take plenty of beating if stripping fitter here. Forgotten Voice was a smooth winner of the Royal Hunt Cup but has struggled up in class since. He ran a respectable race in the Sussex Stakes two starts ago but cut little ice in the Strensall at York last time. Laa Rayb was a runaway winner of the Totesport Mile but consistency isn't his forte and he was soon beaten in France last time. On a going day he is a threat to them all but Bankable is the safer proposition.
