Ted's Brother is bidding for his hat-trick and a fourth win in five starts. He has won twice on soft ground over 7f but this is his first attempt at a mile and he's gone up a further 4lb since his last victory. Preference is for AMETHYST DAWN, who will also love the going and showed signs of a revival at Beverley last time. She's now 4lb lower in the weights than when scoring at Thirsk in June. Take It To The Max was taking on better opposition when third at Haydock earlier in the month and can't be discounted but the handicapper looks to have got to Euston Square and Daring Dream, while Kiwi Bay's winless run now stretches back 12 months though he isn't badly treated on his best form. Good Boy Jackson could also play a part.
