Riflessione has come back to his best lately and chasing a hat-trick after wins on the Fibresand and the Polytrack. But he carries a penalty here and is not nearly as effective on turf. Oh So Spicy is running well and should go close again, though her outside draw is a bit of a concern. Memphis Man usually runs well here but Bermondsey Bob appears to be in the handicapper's grip. Bath runner-up Diamond Vine is on a long losing run so we'll give a tentative vote to SPEAK THE TRUTH, who has won off higher marks than this and looked to be coming back to form when third over a longer trip at Epsom last month.
