A competitive close to proceedings and Glenridding and CATALYZE, third and fourth here last time, could well fight out the finish. The former chases a twelfth career success and he's taken time to find his form this term but his front-running approach will be well suited to this track and must go close. However Catalyze finished just ahead of him last time and the three-year-old has greater scope for improvement. Kingscroft should be in the mix if delivering his best and Rigoletto looks best of the Channon trio, whilst Young Dottie showed promise for the future here on her belated reappearance and has possibilities off a feasible mark.
