Willbeme probably needs to improve again if he's to complete the hat-trick but that isn't out of the question. Roker Park continues to knock on the door and is another possibility while Escape To Glory was third off this mark at Newmarket last month. Pea Shooter has been disappointing this year, however, while Forest Edge can't be guaranteed to reproduce his Leicester run off a 7lb higher mark and Dark Castle returns from a break. Sound Amigo may need an extra furlong but Caranbola seems more versatile nowadays and will be in the firing-line from the outset. It was a little worrying to see NEW LEYF dropped into a claimer at Epsom in July but the drying ground is very much in his favour and he's well treated dropped 5lb since a close-up fifth at Windsor in May. Colin Teague's charge could be a bit of value in this.
