Maven has only found one too good twice here this season. The slight drop in distance might help and he'll make a bold bid to go one better off from near the foot of the weights as stablemate Silvery Moon is likely set a strong pace. Suits Me also likes to force the issue and made all at Ripon 11 days ago when beating the consistent Lord Aeryn. Westwiththenight followed up her Doncaster victory with a second at Ascot and Brae Hill loves these big-field handicaps and will be helped by George Chaloner's claim. FORT BELVEDERE needed his reappearance and first run for Keith Dalgleish at Ripon but has gone close in both starts since at Beverley and Ayr. This intermediate distance should suit and William Buick's presence in the saddle suggests connections mean business today. Sam Sharp did well last year and made a promising comeback at Haydock so looks the pick of the remainder ahead of Musselburgh scorer Classic Colori.
