Indian Affair is usually worth opposing and stablemate Divine Call has been raised 3lb for his second at Chepstow. Caminel can confirm course and distance running in June with the frustrating Assertive Agent and may have found 7f too far here subsequently. DARK LANE mostly runs over 5f nowadays but has won nine times over this trip so won't be inconvenienced. He's in the veteran stage now but running well again and should go close to adding to his Windsor victory under the promising Hollie Doyle. Bajan Story may be best of the rest, though Maria Montez will have needed her comeback run.
