Troopingthecolour won a seller at Wolverhampton last time and will find life tougher in this company. Sing Sweetly has been below par in both outings this season and Nolecce, a runner-up at Beverley on his latest start, makes more appeal. However, PERTUIS won on the Polytrack at Lingfield in January and today's 5lb higher mark is negated by the claim of apprentice David Coyle. Harry Dunlop's charge gets the nod here ahead of Drizzi, Florio Vincitore and Lisahane Bog, who have all won over shorter trips on this surface.
