A good quality event and one in which PACTOLUS (nap) makes plenty of appeal. Not only does he come here at the very top of his game, he's a tactically versatile sort who can make the running if necessary and that could give him the edge in this field. Abe Lincoln is sure to go well back on synthetics and, at bigger odds, it is worth keeping an eye on Speed Company, who is on a decent mark in this sphere. [Richard Young]

Notched four consecutive wins at Kempton in autumn and ran to best when second to Cosmeapolitan over 1m4f here last time; strong traveller should be at least as good back in trip and claims.

Prolific AW winner who confirmed he's at least as good as ever when successful at Wolverhampton on Boxing Day (fourth won next time); should go well from 3lb higher mark.

Smart performer on AW (and on turf judged on Britannia second placing) but only had one well-beaten turf run (in Cambridgeshire) since fine third in the Easter Classic over C&D when just in front of Pactolus at level weights; has run well fresh and big chance if anywhere near best.

Flat and hurdle winner who posted arguably best effort in this sphere when beating stable companion Caspar The Cub over 1m4f here last time; subsequent 3lb rise less of a concern than the drop back to this trip.

Very useful multiple turf winner up to this trip but, although not scored since June 2017, has been running well over hurdles for current yard and on a fair mark for return to the Flat; interesting.
