WORLDOR has been in tremendous form over hurdles and if able to transfer that ability to the Flat he'll take some beating. Kharezi looks the main threat though he's twice been a beaten favourite here when looking one-paced in a finish. Knight Of Bangkok ran very poorly last time and has changed stables so it could be Busted Tycoon who provides the main threat as she's run well on both starts here and has the scope to do better. Winning bumper Anoosou may do best of the remainder.
