Strange to see an all-handicap card but we'll kick off with TUSCAN GOLD on a very trappy day. The Prescott charge unseated early on his seasonal reappearance at the Ebor meeting in a competitive staying handicap when the subject of significant support. Despite conceding weight all round, he's worth chancing as he appears highly regarded. Seaside Sizzler was way out the back in that contest but something was clearly amiss as the Beckett inmate had previously looked a most progressive stayer, notably when runner-up in the Goodwood Stakes. He'll go well if putting that disappointment behind him, whilst the consistent Four Nations and Cunning Act and the unexposed Cluain Dara are others to note.
