This looks wide-open but we're going to take a chance on CHARLIE WELLS, who was far from disgraced back over this trip at Doncaster having won over 1m at Chepstow last month when Khee Society was behind. Nottingham fourth Elite Force may do better in blinkers while Eugenic was beaten less than a length at Salisbury last time, though is 3lb higher now. Avocadeau is back over his best trip and looks the pick of the remainder with Aristocracy proving disappointing and Penny's Boy a doubtful stayer.
