Twice Bitten is struggling for form though his best is good enough to land this and the same comment also applies to Big Creek. Courtesy Call is still improving and should figure again despite failing to record a hat-trick when runner-up at Chester last time but the vote goes to SILENT MOMENT. The Godolphin colt opened his account with victory over 1m2f here three weeks ago and there should be more to come now handicapping for the first time. Mafi and Officer In Command look best of the remainder judged on their recent placed efforts at Lingfield.
