DANEHILL DANTE found the company too hot at Newmarket last month but had found only one too good in maidens at the same track previously and, guaranteed to go on the ground, may be the best bet in a race that probably won't take much winning. Orientalist had every chance when favourite at Windsor three weeks ago and has become disappointing, while Green Earth has gone up 3lb since finishing second at Brighton earlier in the month and Salient has been in the handicapper's grip since winning here last month. Whitby Jet's best form is on top of the ground and he won't get that here.
