Kemble impressed when opening her account at Windsor, but then found life too tough in the Albany at the Royal meeting. This offers a fantastic opportunity for the Kodiac youngster to get back on track and she is respected along with Twice As Likely, who got off the mark at Newbury. However, preference is for Mark Johnston's Brighton scorer ETON COLLEGE, who is a half-brother to French 1000 Guineas heroine Castle Lady, and the well-bred colt could have lots more victories in the locker.

CHAMPAGNE MARENGO arrives in brilliant form having scored at both Catterick and Chelmsford in the last month, and Ian Williams' gelding rates as the one to beat here in search of a hat-trick under his penalty. Haydock winner Grenadier Guard wasn't disgraced at Pontefract last time and is worth keeping an eye on stepping up in trip on his handicap debut, while the consistent Luck Of Clover is considered having made the podium on her last four outings.

AMERICAN GRAFFITI is one to keep on side having followed up his opening victory at Newcastle with further success at Newmarket, despite joining the handicap ranks after a 121-day absence. Charlie Appleby's expensive purchase has yet to finish outside the top two in four outings and the lightly-raced three-year-old can thrive again following a 9lb rise. Duckett's Grove wasn't disgraced in Listed company last time and was a winner before that at Chelmsford, while Hortzadar is respected trying a new distance.

BELLA VITA is unbeaten in three starts in 2019, and having taken to the handicap ranks like a duck to water with a pair of Salisbury triumphs, makes lots of appeal once again following a fair 6lb rise. Dono di Dio has been a silver medalist on six occasions this year, winning her only other outing, and has to be respected, while Hameem's winning spree may have ended in disappointment in Listed company at Pontefract but she is dangerous back handicapping. Cheekpieces could help White Chocolate, with Cape Islay a player following her Chester victory.

Pesto, made a pleasing return to the track, dead-heating for first on his reappearance at Sandown. Richard Hannon's New Approach colt has the chance to build on that stepping up to a mile following a 4lb rise. Red Armada got off the mark in a Chepstow novice event last time and is respected switching to the handicap ranks, while fellow recent winner Prince Of Harts looks capable of making his presence felt. A first-time visor may help perennial bridesmaid Ginger Fox get his head in front. However, preference is for Roger Varian's ELAMIRR, who went close at Newcastle on his handicap bow late last month, and having cleared the airways on that occasion, could better on that third-placed finish off the same mark.
