Brocklebank has been raised 10lb in the weights since January despite not winning. But he was beaten only a head by George Guru here last month with Atlantic Crossing three lengths behind. Yeager is 11lb higher than July's win at Ascot for his reappearance and he has something to prove now along with So Beloved, who finished last when well-backed in the Spring Cup at Newbury on his return. With doubts surrounding all of the above, BUSTOPHER is preferred given he had subsequent winner Absail back in third when scoring at Kempton and further progress is expected on his handicap debut.
