FIFTYSHADESOFGREY looks to have a good opportunity in this. Rated 87, George Baker's charge has been competing in much better company including a four length defeat in the Windsor Castle at Ascot. Gamgoom is going the right way on the evidence of his recent third at Salisbury and Classified Weapon should do better in this grade having failed to figure at Goodwood last week. Clapperboard has a bit more to find but also showed some progress at Kempton recently.
