Sermons Mount may be in the handicapper's grip at present but none of his four rivals in this can be discounted. Kirsty Milczarek gets on well with SHERJAWY, who ran Six Wives to half-a-length on his latest outing at Goodwood. The seven-year-old gets a tentative vote to go one better though Peter Island likes it here and will make a bold bid to make all, despite finishing behind the consistent Magical Speedfit and the selection over C&D 17 days ago. Volito was third at Warwick on his reappearance and should strip fitter here, though is still 3lb higher than when recording his only win so far at Nottingham two years ago.
