Spey Song has a chance if forgiven a below-par run at Newmarket last month and Bold Cross isn't out of this off his current mark. Landesherr has decent claims after a second at Kempton while Kyle Of Bute is only a couple of pounds higher than when scoring over C&D in June. Heezararity, Lean On Pete and Arabic have been running well over a mile but WARDEN BOND is preferred. He scored by over three lengths in an apprentices' race over track and trip last week and, as such, is a winner without a penalty.
