Barista was ending a long losing run when winning at Leicester and a 6lb rise may anchor him in this. Admirable Art carries a penalty for his success over 7f at Salisbury and steps up in class along with another recent winner in Pat's Legacy. UNCLE DERMOT has slipped down the weights since finishing fourth here in August. He was partnered by Kieren Fallon for both previous wins and the latter is back on board for the first time this season. Balmoral Castle could prove best of the remainder.
