Maiden winner DR NO has been keeping good company. Well beaten in the Vintage Stakes at Goodwood, a repeat of his earlier effort in the Coventry at Ascot would be good enough to land this. Sea Wolf never threatened in a Class 2 nursery at York but should be thereabouts today while Polytrack winner Peace And War can also figure having been outclassed in the Albany Stakes at Ascot last time. The newcomer Azzir could have been found an easier opportunity but Good Place should go well after finishing second at Newmarket on her debut.
