Scottish Glen was well handicapped on his all-weather form when winning at Ascot last month but is 6lb higher here, though should again beat Realize. Luhaif was only sixth at Ascot last time but still looks fairly treated and Rapid Advance may have found 1m2f too far at Sandown three weeks ago. SKYTRAIN's third at Goodwood last week bodes well for this similarly undulating track. He's a pound lower today and Michael Murphy takes off 3lb so he'll have no excuses. Course winner Secular Society may be better over further but Mime Dance is proving consistent and could go well. He's won at Epsom so this course should hold no fears.
