The bottom three are out of the handicap and face stiff tasks with RAISE A BILLION looking set to gain his second success of the campaign. Alan Berry's charge scored at Hamilton in May and hasn't been beaten far in either subsequent race. Another Royal can't get her head in front but was staying on strongly over the minimum at Redcar and the extra furlong is no inconvenience. Makin The Rules hasn't had much racing and takes a drop in class so she's definitely one to keep an eye on.
