Kepler's Law began the season on a mark of 57 and gained his fourth successive victory from 75 at Wolverhampton. He's been raised another 10lb and may find the concession of 5lb to WORD POWER beyond him. Sir Henry Cecil's filly struggled to land her maiden at Windsor but that was over 1m2f and her dam, a Listed winner over 1m6f, is related to numerous high-class middle-distance performers so this will be her trip. Dubai Glory is another who has won four times this year though she doesn't have such a good record on Polytrack and had a hard race at Newmarket on Saturday. None of the remaining trio can be dismissed in a tight handicap and track winner Robin Hoods Bay should be suited by stepping up to this trip for the first time.
