Three of these are clear at the weights but one of those, the Listed winner Now Spun, hasn't raced since March. Highland Knight is another with claims but has been way below his best of late and finished well behind runner-up BOOM AND BUST at Salisbury last month. The latter has since gone very close in a Group 3 race at Goodwood and should be winning this with a similar effort. Mister Music ran well in a handicap at Kempton last week and looks best of the remainder on today's terms.
