Two from two over C&D, KACHY would have been a five-star nap from stall 1 but has so much early speed that he could still get across and lead from his wide draw. This trip is on the sharp side for Growl\, so perhaps Duke Of Firenze can fill the forecast position.[Andrew Mount]

Front-runner who took record on left-handed tracks to 11112 when finding only French raider City Light too good at Lingfield on Good Friday (6f); could have been better berthed but 2-2 over C&D and highly respected, having overcome wide draws twice at Lingfield earlier this year.

All wins since maiden success have come in handicap company but no luck in running when fourth in this race 12 months ago and signed off last year with fine 80-1 fourth in the Group 1 Prix de l'Abbaye; lacks a recent outing but couldn't rule out if market vibes positive.

Stewards' Cup fourth (6f, soft) was the highlight of winless 2017 campaign and not raced at minimum trip since 2l fourth at this meeting two years ago; can go well after a break and well drawn but likely placed at best in reapplied cheekpieces.

Talented but frustrating sprinter who ran close to career best when second at Chelmsford latest (6f); however, won just once since July 2015 and could only finish 4l runner-up in this race last year when drawn in stall 2.

Mostly raced in Dubai, with mixed results, since wide-margin winner of this corresponding race two years ago; decent fifth over C&D yesterday after slow start and, from a much better draw today, couldn't rule out if turning out quickly.

Dual 5f winner at two and having first run back with Bryan Smart when going close at Newcastle six weeks ago (5f); lacks course experience and would be getting plenty of weight were this a handicap.

2-3 over C&D but those wins came in Class 4 handicaps and showed nothing in similar company at Musselburgh in October on first start back with Alan Berry; impossible to fancy on these terms.
