A few of these look in the grip of the handicapper. Tiradito has struggled since scoring at Wolverhampton in April and My Son Max has failed to build on his win at York in June. Reposer has gone back up in the weights after popping up at a big price here last time and Greensward is still 6lb higher than his win at Wolverhampton last year. Showboating and All Right Now could make the frame but a chance is taken on MUNAASEB, whose maiden win at Lingfield stands up well in this company and who should be capable of better stepping up in trip.
