Perpetually suffered in the weights after completing a double in novice company and the ground could be on the soft side for him. Quinsman's winning run came to an end at Sedgefield and the handicapper may have hold of him while El Dancer could just need the run after an absence since May. Wayward Glance is going well and likely to be in the mix and Spirit Is Needed looked on the way back to form at Sedgefield but this looks destined for SAINGLEND. Sean Curran's charge scored over the trip at Stratford in April before a tremendous run in a better race at Aintree. A run on the Flat on Sunday will have put him straight and this looks within his capabilities.
