Xenophon finished ahead of Itsonlyalfie over a shorter trip here last month and is actually better off at the weights. Presenting Junior is 10lb higher than his last winning mark but was only beaten a length-and-a-half at Sedgefield last time and can't be ruled out. He makes more appeal than One In A Row, who has yet to prove that he stays this far, BRINGEWOOD BELLE has gone up 8lb since scoring for the second time at Chepstow in quick succession but she'll get every assistance from the saddle and can battle her way to a hat-trick.
