A chance is taken on NOT SO SLEEPY, who has inconsistent form figures but looks nicely treated if bringing his 'A' game. He won the Dee Stakes here in 2015 and is back on the same mark as when winning a good handicap at Epsom last June. The in-form Gulf Of Poets has to be respected, along with 2016 winner Dark Red. Restorer looks an interesting contender on his debut for new connections and it would be significant if the money comes for him.[Steve Boow]

Very useful handicapper who won this race (off 11lb lower) two years ago; has hinted that this sort of mark isn't beyond him and can't be dismissed; shaped better than bare result suggests in the Lincoln last time.

4yo with low mileage; scored in visor on last two outings for Sir Michael Stoute (1m3f/1m2f); shaped as though in need of the run on stable/seasonal debut (wore cheekpieces; retained) and may still have more to offer.

Raced mainly over further and has done his winning at 1m4f/1m6f; sixth in the Rosebery at Kempton (1m3f, AW) on reappearance; has slipped to a handy mark but may find this test too sharp; cheekpeices applied.

Won the Dee Stakes here as a 3yo; only subsequent win came off this mark in Epsom handicap (1m2f, good) last June and he holds every chance if turning up in top form; best to forgive his Lincoln run last time (raced alone; 1m trip wasn't ideal anyway).

Down the field in valuable AW handicap six weeks ago, following his Kempton win (1m3f) in February; return to grass is less of a concern than his mark, which is almost a stone higher than for last turf win.
