It could pay to stick with BLUE TOP in this. He's chasing a hat-trick having scored over today's trip at Redcar and is just preferred to Latin Rebel. The latter went close over track and trip last time and should make another bold bid ahead of Madam Lilibet, a shock winner over 2m at Newcastle last time. Geanie Mac has to be forgiven a woeful effort at Hamilton but has a shout on her earlier form while Lady Gargoyle may do better back over her winning trip.
