French import Hail To The Chief makes a quick reappearance after his fourth here last week and is preferred to stablemate Maun Vrat. Altaria is unlucky not to have lost her maiden tag yet and steps up in trip for this along with Perfect Heart, fourth over 1m4f here in August. SASH OF HONOUR wasn't beaten far in a handicap at Sandown in July and he gets the vote back in this company ahead of Toptempo and Openly, a disappointing eighth at Yarmouth last time
