Fujin Dancer, Sirvino and Hillview Boy catch the eye here with the in form SIRVINO taken to complete a four timer under a 6lb penalty. Hillview Boy won on his Flat debut, having taken a Musselburgh bumper in a light National Hunt campaign. He is hard to assess, but he may struggle off his fairly high rating. Fujin Dancer won off an all weather rating of 90 earlier this year, and races here off a mark of just 71. He shaped well last time, only beaten just over two lengths in a decent Beverley handicap and can go well again. Sirvino came into this season as an unexposed type, and quickly showed that he was well treated, reeling off a quick hat-trick. He is still improving, and looks capable of shrugging off a 6lb penalty here.
