COOL SKY is taken to continue his winning ways. He landed a hat trick when successful over C&D last week and a penalty is negated by Robert Tart's 7lb claim. English Summer should fare better back down in trip after a four length defeat over 2m at this track while Torero may have improved since last seen at the track in June. Cheers For Thea and Admiral Duque are both hard to predict but have claims on their best form.
