Cleonte will have leading claims if confirming the promise of his reappearance second at Salisbury, now being 4lb well in, but he's not totally convincing. Most appealing is SOGHAN. This one has raced only on AW but has won two of his last three starts, most recently when upped to this trip for the first time, and he should be effective on turf, so he probably has more to give. Royal Reserve, Imphal and Graceful Lady are others to consider.[Ron Wood]

Raced only on AW, two wins over 1m4f-2m, most recently Kempton Class 4; now up in grade from 3lb higher and must prove himself on turf, but potentially has plenty more to give.

Improved to win last four starts of 2017 elsewhere under Tyler Saunders (1m5f-2m, firm/good/AW); the last two were gained by just a short head, and now up from Class 5 and another 5lb higher, but open to more improvement.

Won Listed race (1m7f, good) in France in 2016; held since coming to Britain, but close second off this mark at Salisbury (1m6f, heavy) on reappearance; now 4lb well in, but is being turned out again quite quickly after what was a slog, and the ground looks like being much faster now.

Best form is on AW but has won on turf and has 6lb lower mark on this surface; now makes first start for new yard, and this step back up in trip looks a good move, so could figure; headgear off.
