This looks wide-open. Moontime found little when asked to pick up at Epsom on his comeback but jockey bookings suggest he's still preferred to stablemate and course winner Devilment. Laugharne was tailed off on his return to action but Warrior Of Light and Elysian Prince scored on Polytrack last term and should be winning again this year. Fitzgerald bids for a hat-trick and will appreciate the longer trip after getting up on the line at Wolverhampton last time. The latter has every chance, but WONDER WEAPON is just preferred having gone close over 1m4f here on his handicap debut. He is effectively racing off a lower mark with Oisin Murphy's 3lb allowance taken into account.
