Mayan Flight finished second at this level at Wolverhampton last time and could figure again, while Dolly Colman's placed efforts over today's trip gives her a shout. Vinces improved for the step up to 2m last time but is by no means certain to repeat that form here and Sunset Boulevard looks to be on the downgrade. Time To Play finished just ahead of IT'S DUBAI DOLLY when fifth over C&D last month. However, he ran shocker last time so the latter gets the speculative vote as she looks more likely to run her race today.
