A penalty for last week's win at Epsom may scupper the chances of Majuro following-up while this is tougher than the race Roy The Boy won over C&D last month. Amoure Medici is still improving though is up 5lb for a narrow margin victory over track and trip a fortnight ago and it could pay to stick with SCOTTISH LAKE. He's returned to action in fine form winning both starts at Kempton so far this year and a hat trick looks on the cards despite another 6lb rise. Pipers Piping has decent claims if forgiven a below a par effort at Southwell when last seen at the track in February.
