IPTISAM stands out as the most progressive. He bids for a hat-trick after landing a race at Epsom on his handicap debut and there looks more to come from James Tate's charge. Silver Rime makes a quick reappearance having been well beaten over a mile at Ayr last week but scored at the same track before that while Sound Advice also drops back in distance after a narrow-margin defeat at Redcar. Skytrain is only 1lb higher than when scoring at Catterick in August and may have another win in him this year.
