HOME ADVANTAGE has been given a break since disappointing at Newmarket and may be able to overcome a low draw on his all-weather bow as he's reunited with Richard Hughes. His yard continues in good form and, as the form of his wins at Bath and Warwick worked out well, it's worth giving him the chance to bounce back. This is hugely competitive though and Green Wadi has to be considered having been well backed at Epsom last week whilst Cosimo De Medici and Godolphin cast-off Lyric Poet are unexposed and progressive. Kerchak should be competitive but doesn't look as open to as much progress as Mecox Bay and Fantastic Strike who make some appeal lurking at the foot of the weights for yards that are bang in form.
