Compton Blue could easily bounce back from a below-par effort behind Parc Des Princes at Market Rasen but didn't run very well on the Flat at Epsom last month. Bathwick Man won at Stratford in July before finishing second at Fontwell while Mzuri Bay wasn't disgraced over 3m at Uttoxeter last time and might appreciate the drop in distance. WILD RHUBARB came into her own in the spring and her five-length defeat of Aimigayle at Uttoxeter in May reads well. If she's improved again over the summer, Jonjo O'Neill's mare could complete the hat-trick.
