Sir Robert Cheval has been keeping decent company on Polytrack and is preferred to less-exposed stablemate Hagree on this occasion. Mark Johnston also runs two with Joe Fanning preferring Yarmouth runner-up Crowdmania to Lady Frances, who finished behind Sir Robert Cheval at Lingfield last month. Karl Burke has his string in fine form so any market interest in Mr Matthews, who tries another furlong, would be significant and Brazos and Can't Change It can't be ignored. But we'll take a chance on the fitness of MAWFOOR. He ran in a Group 2 and a Group 3 after winning his maiden at Haydock last June and was also third in a valuable sales race at Doncaster over this trip. He may be a bit better than a handicapper.
