Global Leader was only beaten half-a-length over 7f here last month. He's been raised 3lb since but must have a fair chance of going one better. Hot Mustard has a win and two places from five previous runs over course and distance and can't be ignored but Patriotic and Choice Of Destiny failed to follow up previous wins last time. LILLY JUNIOR was third to subsequent Listed winner Belle D'Or on her latest start at Goodwood. She makes her handicap debut off a decent mark so gets the nod.
