Cash And Go has been popular ante-post as he bids to go one better than last year off the same mark. Pine Creek made a winning return in a Listed event at Ascot and looks to have improved over the winter. John Quinn runs a couple with decent claims in Kashmir Peak and Calculated Risk while Sametegal gave weight and a beating to five rivals over course and distance last month, though was only second to Court Minstrel at Ayr in April. FLAXEN FLARE won the Fred Winter here in March and is fancied to reverse subsequent Aintree form with the mare L'Unique on 6lb better terms. He was far from disgraced when third to Jezki at Down Royal at the start of the month so get a tentative vote in a wide-open affair. Ifandbutwhynot ran well for a long way at Aintree on his reappearance and is preferred to French import Dell' Arca of the remainder as Tanerko Emery needs softer ground.
