Castletown Bridge beat a decent yardstick at Perth but doesn't look particularly well treated back in handicap company. Nicky Henderson's pair, First In The Queue and Laudatory, may also have too much weight while Lancetto and Leviathan have been off for a while but Anay Turge likes it here and is capable of running well fresh and is preferred to the disappointing Sud Pacifique. Belle De Fontenay has only been winning sellers and For Two hung badly on his reappearance at Chepstow and may not be an ideal ride for an inexperienced rider. FOXCUB was always travelling strongly when scoring at Fontwell two weeks ago. He's been raised a massive 17lb but is still receiving weight from all but one of his rivals and can score again. Della Sun has improved this year but may be better suited by an extra half-mile.
