CROSS CULTURE looks to have leading claims here. He made all to score over C&D last time and is taken to follow-up as Andrew Balding's charge is less exposed than today's chief rivals. Those look to be Salient, who is 5lb higher than his C&D victory last month when he had previous track and trip winner Song To The Moon well behind, and With Hindsight, who looks ready for this step up in trip. Battle Of Britain was a runaway winner at Yarmouth last time, but the handicapper has made sure that won't happen again by raising him 11lb, and You've Been Mowed is 8lb higher than her recent win at Nottingham.
