Eye Of The Tiger, a Group 2 winner in his younger days, won by nine lengths when sent on a raid to Lingfield in January. Johnny Murtagh's nine-year-old doesn't stand much racing but won't have travelled over for nothing. Kieren Fallon kept Classical Art up to his work to hold on at Windsor in June and is in the saddle again while Bold Runner beat Kashmiri Sunset on soft ground at Salisbury in May, though the runner-up is weighted to reverse that form here. CURBYOURENTHUSIASM had Bold Runner behind when third over a slightly longer distance at Newmarket in June. Placed twice on soft going, David Simcock's grey can finally get his head in front today.
