BROUGHTONS BANDIT has already won over this trip at Kempton and was just denied in a blanket finish over 1m4f here last month. That was his first outing since May so he should strip fitter today and is difficult to oppose against ordinary opposition. Cecily Parsley could be interesting if fully wound-up as she won twice over fences last spring, though hasn't shown much on the Flat so far. On The Feather was second in a seller over course and distance 12 days ago but has to concede weight all round while Rollin 'n Tumblin continues to disappoint. Princely Hero is fit from a campaign jumping but may not have the pace to trouble these any more.
