The progressive JUST PAUL has rattled up five wins this year. His latest came at Musselburgh last month and he's taken to confirm running with Lazarus Bell and Sherzam despite a further 5lb rise. West Leake Hare has a shout on last month's good effort in soft ground at Thirsk when finishing just ahead of Showboating, while it's too soon to write off course and distance winner Dawn Calling after his below par effort at Hamilton. Llewellyn got his head back in front at Ayr last time and should be in the mix once again.
