Lazarus Bell has something to prove over today's mile trip and The Cayterers has shown his best form of late over further. Ishikawa is 8lb higher than when scoring at Sandown during the summer and Elspeth's Boy has been raised the same amount after winning over track and trip earlier in the month. Dark Ruler's recent victory came over 1m2f in testing ground so the vote goes to SILVERWARE, beaten only a head at Beverley last time with a subsequent winner back in third.
