Come On Blue Chip has been in cracking form around here this year but has been raised a further 3lb since beaten a neck over course and distance two weeks ago when Prince Of Burma, who now sports cheekpieces, was a close-up third. Cactus Valley rarely runs a bad race and has every chance on his latest fourth at Newbury while Starfield should strip fitter for his reappearance at Newmarket. GREYLAMI is a sporting selection, however, in the hope that a little of the Dettori magic rubs off. It's almost three years since he was last in the winner's enclosure but Clive Cox' grey is now a stone lower in the ratings and he's shown enough this term to suggest he is no back number.
