HIDDEN GLORY should appreciate the drop back to a mile and with Pat Eddery electing to use the services of a very decent 7lb claimer in James Rogers, we are hopeful of a big run at a juicy price. Robust Wish is back in the blinkers this afternoon and with Kieren Fallon aboard, it would be no surprise to see him a popular order. Daboos won first time out at Folkestone and demolished a fair field with plenty of style. Anacopa has a dirt pedigree so she has to be of some interest having raced exclusively on turf. Prince Of Thebes loves it around here and while an infrequent winner, will be popular with those with interests in the placepot. Dylanesque probably didnt stay nine furlongs at Sandown though a 3lb rise seems a little spiteful on the handicapper's part.
