Muharrer gained his first success since making a winning debut in 2012 with a comfortable victory at Newcastle last month. A 7lb rise takes him onto his highest ever rating and this looks slightly tougher. Fashion Line completed a Wolverhampton double early this year and hadn't been beaten far in subsequent starts until running poorly at Ascot where the soft ground could have been responsible for finishing last. San Cassiano steps up in class after landing an amateurs' event at York and a 5lb rise won't help though he does hold Amaze on that run but it's INSAANY who is given the nod to complete a hat-trick. Mark Johnston's colt has won two handicaps in the style of a rapidly improving type and though this is tougher he looks to have the right attitude for the job.
