SIR MAXIMILIAN gets the tentative vote as he drops back down to this grade as he finished a decent third over C&D last month. There's plenty more with claims as Kuanyao's earlier placed effort at Yarmouth was decent form and Dream Catcher had recorded a double on soft ground before a close-up third at Newmarket last time. Emiratesdotcom is creeping up the weights despite not winning but C&D winner Yeeow is dropped in class for his first start since April and may figure.
