Flatcapper didn't shown much improvement from his debut when finishing third over track and trip last time. He should still be thereabouts with a similar effort in this company but ALANS PRIDE is preferred. The latter was doing his best work at the finish over 6f at Carlisle on his debut and his winning relatives scored over today's longer trip. Lucilla Aurelius is another expected to improve for 7f and Grand Proposal could also finish closer on this occasion.
