Gala Casino Star has been raised a further 4lb since his winning run came to an end at Ripon and is hard to fancy here. Madam Macie and Silvery Moon also came unstuck last time while Lucky Henry was a big disappointment at Leicester on Tuesday. Full Toss and Angel Gabrial both bring winning form into the race and the latter, in particular, probably has a bit more to offer but PRUSSIAN made Labarinto pull out all the stops in a valuable handicap at Sandown last Saturday. He likes to race close to the pace so stall two here looks ideal and Mark Johnston's three-year-old is the one to beat on that form, though it would be no surprise if Beaufort Twelve were to feature having faced some stiff tasks since winning at Goodwood in the spring. Ascot third Boogie Shoes is back over his best trip and is another to consider.
