Rambo Will has been running well without winning and has crept up the weights as a consequence while though Bavarian Princess finished second at Newcastle last time she has done all her winning on the all-weather so far. PARADISE SPECTRE is becoming frustrating after failing to justify support on his last couple of starts but gets one more chance dropping down a grade today. Dear Maurice is holding his form though this is tougher than the contest he won at Brighton in July and Efistorm is preferred as he won this off a higher mark last year.
