Ascot Gold Cup hero Colour Vision is weighted to reverse later Goodwood Cup form with SADDLER'S ROCK but whether he'll handle today's ground as well as John Oxx's charge is another matter. The latter should return to something like his best in the soft going and gets the nod. Admirable veteran Kasbah Bliss finally won this event last year and is not easily overlooked this time around while High Jinx is rapidly improving and looks another to consider. Miss Lago had a few of these behind when runner-up over 2m here three weeks ago but it would be no surprise if both Vadamar and Lone Ranger reverse running while smart hurdler Nikita Du Berlais is interesting making her belated debut on the Flat.
