BROXBOURNE continues on her upward curve and wasn't unduly tested when landing her hat-trick with a four-length victory at Wolverhampton last time. She looks sure to stay this longer trip and is preferred to Beat Route. The latter found only Honourable Knight too good over track and trip last month and should have the beating of Rosewood Lad and Ctappers but Lascaux could prove a threat. She'll have come on for her recent comeback at Kempton and last year's placed form on the Turf suggests there's much more to come from her.
