Hill Forts Gloria returned to form with a better effort at Newton Abbot when last seen at the track in June. That came on fast ground, however, as did Always Bold's improved run at Uttoxeter last month. Its A Classic reverts to hurdling after failing to complete his last three outings over fences, while Silsula and Drombeg Pride don't look good enough to trouble the judges. That should leave the way clear for AZULADA BAY to follow up his recent convincing win over track and trip despite a 9lb rise.
