HIGHLAND GLEN looks a useful prospect and looks set to score here ahead of Quai D'Orsay and Alanbrooke. The selection was a winner at Lingfield last time and showed a significant improvement on the form he'd shown in a 1m maiden at Newmarket. He looks a useful prospect and can be expected to progress, especially at this trip. Mark Johnston's Quai D'Orsay put in a sound effort when finishing runner-up at Chester on his seasonal return earlier this month. He looks capable of improvement and should be a major worry to the selection. The second of Mark Johnston's runners here is Alanbrooke and he looks to be hitting some decent form. He put in a promising performance at Newbury last time. He should come into his own over this trip and looks an interesting horse to follow. Opinion Poll looks best of the remainder and ran respectable when last seen. He looked unhappy on the fast ground and may be suited by the surface here and is worth a mention. Check the market for a guide to the rest in a race where Sir Michael Stoute's Highland Glen looks set for victory.
