TOP VILLE BEN was bang in contention when falling three out at Chepstow last time and providing that tumble hasn't left its mark he could be tough to beat here, even though he concedes weight all around. Golden Town makes some appeal on his Musselburgh second on his penultimate outing and should be thereabouts, while Ramonex has place claims if building on his latest effort at Towcester now debuting for a new stable.
TOP VILLE BEN probably isn't one to take a short price about given his exuberant nature, but looked the likely winner when coming down at Chepstow last time and is taken to get back on the scoreboard in the opener. Golden Town and Aldeburgh may be the ones to chase him home.
