Lady Gar Gar produced a better effort back in this grade last time but she's an unknown over this longer trip, as is Nottingham mile winner Good Boy Jackson. Circus Act and Barnum both ran shockers on their latest starts and it's hard to know what to expect from them here, while Wolverhampton maiden winner Bountiful Guest has yet to race on turf. MAY BE SOME TIME carries a 6lb penalty for his recent success over today's trip at Leicester, but he trounced his rivals on that occasion and can go in again with further progress on the cards.
