Cape Royal is still capable of a decent showing at this level, despite his advanced years, while Two Turtle Doves is a model of consistency but is starting to creep up the weights again despite not winning and she's a couple of pounds worse off than when just touching off RED RHYTHM at Chepstow in July. David Evans' gelding didn't like the soft ground here last time nor when behind Spic 'n Span at Chepstow earlier but today's going shouldn't be a problem and he can recapture the winning thread. Having rattled up a hat-trick, Lizzy's Dream has to be respected while Irish raider Drinmoy Lad appears to have his fair share of weight for a three-year-old and was due to run at Kempton yesterday.
