UPPER GROSVENOR landed the odds at Kempton last month with the minimum of fuss and Roger Varian's excellent strike rate at this track suggests his colt will handle the surface. He gets the vote given multiple course winner Hannahs Turn is 6lb higher than her latest victory here and Repetition has struggled in handicaps since winning his maiden over track and trip. King Bertie has claims on his earlier second over course and distance and is preferred to track specialist Mazovian, who hasn't raced since April.
