Poor Duke beat lesser horses in a seller on the all-weather last time while Mercers Row scored over 7f here last month but has yet to win over further. Byron's Dream is upped in class after going close at Newcastle, so LIVING DANGEROUSLY is preferred. He found only one too good at Musselburgh on his latest start and the form looks solid enough with the third-placed horse subsequently winning. Alanos and Pat's Legacy also made the frame last time without threatening the winner.
