Tom Dascombe and Richard Kingscote teamed up to win this race in both 2017 and 2019 and they appear to have another cracking chance with COMMONSENSICAL this time around. The Bated Breath colt left his debut performance well behind when three-parts of a length second at Haydock (fourth won next time) and he can whiz round here to make it third-time lucky. State Patrol made a promising debut at York and rates the biggest threat, although Elusive Artist, Tommy And Andy and Praise Of Shadows are all interesting newcomers.

Simon & Ed Crisford have their string in great form at present and DIFFERENT FACE could prove them with another winner in this. James Doyle's mount has done little wrong in three starts to date and if breaking a little sharper than at Goodwood last time, she could prove tough to pass. Alongside her, Ready Freddie Go and Cuban Breeze will ensure there is an honest gallop and both of those have chances, while Power On also merits consideration after a blinding run in the Weatherbys Super Sprint.

Leading course owner Dr Marwan Koukash has a couple of solid chances with Gabrial The Saint and Penwortham, while past C&D scorer Lincoln Park has been threatening to win and makes plenty of appeal with Silvestre De Sousa a positive jockey booking. However, marginal preference is for TRUE BLUE MOON. Tim Easterby continues to fire out the winners and this gelding ran well enough off a 1lb higher mark at York last time to suggest that he should be very competitive.

ZAMAANI is a colt on a sharp upward curve and really impressed with wins at both Windsor and Goodwood last month. He must concede 3lb and upwards to these rivals, but is potentially a Group performer and can get the job done. As good as he is, though, Mystery Smiles and Regional both looked smart when winning on debut and they should at least keep him honest, while local handler Tom Dascombe will be hoping for a good run from his Redcar scorer Fools Rush In.
