There was plenty of market confidence behind Creek Falcon at Leicester last month and he didn't disappoint. A winner over course and distance in the spring, he's gone up a further 6lb but should run his race again. The three-year-old Defendant is sure to be popular given connections as he didn't enjoy the run of the race at Sandown last time. Otto The Great was second at Leicester recently and is another to consider while both Amazing Amoray and Fils Anges are capable of bouncing back from recent disappointments. GLEN MOSS finished fourth in a stronger heat here last month and the winner and second have upheld the form recently. He could be another winner for Kiwi jockey James McDonald.
