Bancnuanaheireann is 9lb higher than when landing the Silver Cambridgeshire at Newmarket but has since finished ahead of Uramazin at Lingfield. Indian Jack has finally found some consistency and had Moonday Sun behind when scoring over today's trip at Lingfield last month. The latter had earlier finished second to Rebellious Guest over a mile and George Margarson's charge tries this longer trip for the first time. Spa's Dancer has done all his winning over shorter distances so far and Epic Battle is upped in class. The luckless Shavansky has leading claims as he attempts to reverse latest running with Indian Jack but a chance is taken on ANSAAB. He has a recent second at this track under his belt and given he scored over today's trip and on the Polytrack when trained by Kevin Prendergast in Ireland, he could provide a bit of value in an ultra-competitive handicap.
