Plenty with claims in this and RUSCELLO gets only a speculative vote. The dual course winner was beaten only a length in a higher grade handicap at Doncaster last time and should go close again. Dangers abound with Godolphin running three and top weight Saytara just preferred of those on only her second start of the year. Voodoo Prince has been dropped a generous 3lb as he steps back down in class but a 12lb rise for She's Late finally winning a maiden seems excessive. The lightly-raced Jeeraan may well be good enough on his handicap bow and Villoresi isn't out of this either.
