Sublimation is the highest rated in the field and has Ryan Moore on board. But it's a worry to see Richard Hannon's colt make his three-year-old debut at this level rather than going handicapping and OVERRIDER may prove better value. The latter has had his chance in handicaps and split a couple of subsequent winners when third at Kempton last month. Lady Lunchalot has a chance at the weights with an apprentice's claim taken into account and Devout is chasing a hat-trick but facing a tough task on today's terms after landing a couple of lowly handicaps. Ishigunnaeatit remains out of sorts.
