Super Say made a disappointing comeback at Kempton earlier this month and better is expected today. Fennell Bay's form tapered off last season after winning four times earlier in the year and he may need the outing while recent runner-up Swing Alone as yet to prove he stays this far. Aquilonius has held his form well since beating MIA'S BOY over track and trip in February but the latter re-opposes on better terms. Add leading all-weather apprentice Robert Tart's claim to the equation and Chris Dwyer's charge looks to have every chance of landing this. Daghash and John Biscuit have claims but may be better with today's outing under their belts.
