King's Masque scored at Leicester on Tuesday and should be thereabouts again but IGUACU is preferred. The latter looked to have a bit to spare when scoring by over two lengths over C&D earlier this month and collateral form gives Richard Price's charge the beating of Spiritual Art. Finch Flyer was third over a longer trip here last month and has won twice over hurdles since. He looks a bigger threat than Golden Jubilee, a winner over a mile in soft going back in May.
