Megalala was well beaten off this mark at Windsor on Saturday and is likely to struggle again here. Bramalea takes a huge drop in class but is in need of some help from the handicapper, while If I Were A Boy continues to edge up the weights despite not winning. Sancho Panza and Epsom Salts are probably better over further nowadays and this looks too tough for Resplendent Light, while Rowan Tiger has disappointed since finishing second at Salisbury though Simon Walker's presence in the saddle is a plus. MAYBE I WONT won this last year under Phil Collington, however, and races off the same mark again despite a recent return to winning ways at Nottingham. The partnership looks primed for an encore.
