This is anybody's race but Ryan Moore is booked for UPHOLD, a winner in France last month, and the latter gets the vote on that basis. Modernism is preferred to stablemate Nave after a third at Lingfield, although he has something to prove over this longer trip as does recent 1m2f winner Qanan. Scottish Star finished ahead of Uriah Heep here last time and may get involved off his current mark and Muharrer has a shout on the pick of this year's placed efforts.
