Right To Dream finished runner-up at Leicester last time and there was little separating him and Macdonald Mor on earlier running at Goodwood behind Trumpet Major. That pair are likely to dominate the betting here, but Trumpet Major is trained by Richard Hannon and he should have a good handle on the form as he introduces CLASSY STRIKE. The latter has entries in the upcoming valuable sales races and his stable has won this race on two of the three occasions it's been run. He gets the vote here. Atlantis Crossing has plenty of speed in his pedigree and is preferred to stablemate Scouting For Girls.
