A big field and though Putin is the only recent winner he has yet to score on Turf in 22 attempts. SPIN AGAIN was successful over track and trip last summer and is 6lb lower today. John Ryan's charge has gone close on the Polytrack the last twice and can land this confirming recent running with Mudhish in the process. Wolverhampton winner Tatting has had just a couple of starts on Turf and makes more appeal than One Kool Dude as the latter steps up in trip, but Automotive has raced exclusively on the all-weather since leaving France and may do better today. Zaheeb is a course and distance winner and looks best of the rest.
