A difficult contest on paper with a lot of these out of form and not showing many signs of a revival. BOHER LAD bounced back when finishing second here over slightly further behind Finish The Story and has to merit consideration running off the same mark with Stan Sheppard keeping the ride. Cheltenam De Vaige showed improvement when third at Towcester earlier this month and may find improvement for the step up to 3m, while Classico Dais ran better than his finishing position suggests last time and looks best of the remainder.
CLASSICO DAIS shaped much better than the margin of defeat suggests over further here last time, shaping for the most part like a horse ahead of his mark, and he gets the nod with improvement expected. Cheltenham de Vaige, who boasts a similar profile, is feared most, ahead of Boher Lad.
