ROYAL SWAIN had the re-opposing Golden Future back in fourth when scoring at Doncaster on his return to action. All ground comes alike to Alan Swinbank's charge and he's taken to follow up off a 3lb higher mark. Bradbury's recent victory at the track brings him into the mix and he should take care of runner-up Spirit Of A Nation again while Los Nadis was beaten only a head over hurdles last month but needs a longer trip than this on the Flat nowadays. My Arch finished closer at Bath last time and a 3lb drop combined with Julie Burke's allowance gives him a shout.
