Thataboy came up short when attempting to land a gamble over 5f here last time and will be looking to make amends. Kinglami is in need of some respite from the handicapper but isn't getting any while Zarliman never figured on his first start for a new yard but went close on the all-weather at Chantilly last year. Drive On has claims on his earlier second over track and trip but another chance goes to DINNERATMIDNIGHT. He failed to cope in a tough sprint at York on his handicap bow but this is more his level having beaten a subsequent winner at Warwick on his introduction.
