Vimy Ridge arrives off then back of a win at Thirsk and Jack Garrity's claim takes care of most of his penalty. Markaz is making good progress and won comfortably at Ascot last time. He's another to consider but Sunset Sail had little to beat when getting off the mark at Windsor and Red Icon seems to have plenty of weight. Nottingham scorer INNISCASTLE LAD needs to improve again but appears to have a good attitude and could represent a bit of value in a tricky nursery. He's preferred to the once-raced pair Great Park and L'Addition with George Bowen, out of his depth last time, looking best of the rest.
