Black Spirit and Strictly Silver ran below par last time but Alan Bailey's charge may reverse earlier running here with Sam Sharp on today's faster ground. Hi There finished third to the latter in the same race and would also prefer a softer surface. Seussical made a mid-season switch to Luca Cumani after showing progressive form in Ireland. But he's up 10lb for finishing third in a Listed race at Leopardstown in June and Excellent Result makes more appeal dropping back in trip after scoring at Ascot. Stablemate OUT OF BOUNDS made all in a conditions race at Doncaster on his return to action and Saeed Bin Suroor's colt gets the nod to follow-up with further progress expected. Benzanno looks best of the rest
