Keys Of Cyprus makes plenty of appeal as this is his time of year and conditions are ideal, but a mark of 81 means a career-best is required and he's taken on with that in mind. One horse who is potentially well-treated is Everymanforhimself, who has blinkers back on in place of the visor, but he's best over six furlongs and is one to watch with another day in mind. Dual course and distance winner Trans Sonic is weighted to the best of his turf form, so of more interest is Game Lad who fared better last time and is just a pound above his last winning mark. However, in an open contest, it may pay to focus on the in-form Glenridding and ICELANDIC, with the latter preferred. He's without a win in handicap company but has generally been racing in much better contests and has slipped a long way in the weights, shaping with more promise last time, and conditions are ideal.
