Forget Me Not Lane rattled up a hat-trick last summer but hasn't raced since June and is 6lb higher on his return to action. Bright Applause steps up a grade having landed a double when successful at Newcastle recently and Fly Solo will also find this tougher than the maiden he won in soft ground at Thirsk last week. MUHARRER left a disappointing seasonal debut behind when finishing runner-up at Haydock earlier this month behind a John Gosden-trained hot favourite. He'll be more at home in this company and gets the nod to return to winning ways.
