English Summer remains on a winning mark but came up just short over 1m4f here last week. PORCINI is more reliable having won twice on the Polytrack last month and beating subsequent winner Blue Dune over 2m here last time. She gets the nod to land her hat trick though Madame St Clair should give another good account after a second at Salisbury and the veteran Kames Park is still capable of popping up off his current mark. Singzak and Nave have a shout dropped in class but Rocky Rebel looks to have done his winning for the year.
