Dream Chaser has steadily been edging closer to the target with each start and warrants respect, but OCEAN STAR is 8lb higher than that rival on official figures and receives 7lb off him, so she gets the nod. Blinkers replace the cheekpieces worn at Hamilton last time and that could do the trick. The Kodi Kid and Sammy Sunshine might not be able to win on debut, but both could run well.

Bobby On The Beat has earned a rating of 74 with three promising efforts and he is unlikely to be far away at the finish, but it could be a case of third-time lucky for Mick Channon's NASTASE. After two solid third-placed performances over 7f, he is 3lb ahead of the former on official figures and dropping down in trip is expected to suit. Batindi disappointed at Beverley but has a chance on her debut form.

Difficult to be too confident about any of these, but SOVEREIGN STATE is joint top-rated, alongside Tawaafoq, and the fact that he is one from one at this venue is encouraging. The latter has been knocking on the door all year and he is likely to be in the shake-up again, while Champagne Bob and Some Nightmare, who wears cheekpieces for the first time, are others to note.

DOC SPORTELLO ran a big race to finish second behind a rapidly-improving winner at Windsor and can go one better. The eight-year-old has been raised 2lb, but he is still fairly treated based on old form and can strike for the first time since October. Glenamoy Lad drops in class slightly and should appreciate this return to 6f, while Gambon is just 1lb above his last winning mark and was a creditable third here a fortnight ago.
