Liam Jones produced a positive front-running ride on Bounty Seeker at Yarmouth and keeps the mount despite Mark Johnston also having the top weight Red Orator in the line-up. The latter ran very poorly when fancied at Goodwood last time and may be a few pounds high. DR IRV has gone up 5lb for a convincing victory at Musselburgh but that doesn't look enough to prevent a follow-up with Declan Cannon's claim a bonus. Aleksandar has won over 1m6f and found 1m4f too short at Hamilton so, with this trip likely to suit, he looks a threat.
