Bollin Judith is at the top of her game and had Descaro behind at York latest. But she will have to defy a career-high mark if she is to complete her hat-trick here. Wells Lyrical couldn't follow up his Pontefract success at the same track off this higher mark last time and is closely matched with Pittodrie Star now, while this longer trip will have to bring about improvement in Colour Vision if he's to figure despite a decent effort over 1m4f here in May. NEVER CAN TELL's two previous attempts over this trip have ended in defeat but Jamie Osborne's filly has won twice over 1m6f and was impressive from the front over 1m4f here last time. She is taken to follow up.
