Verdict

Veteran course specialist Elusive Warrior has a shout at this level and Mazovian is not easily dismissed off his current mark. The latter may well reverse running from earlier in the year with Bitaphon. Upper Lambourn has shown his best form here over 6f so far while Mataajir is another course winner to have slipped down the weights and he may figure. MASKED DANCE returns from an absence but an apprentice's claim allows him to race off a 7lb lower mark than when scoring here in February and Scott Dixon's charge gets a tentative vote.
