Power Play could easily bounce back from a third behind stablemate When Will It End at Newmarket, though is a pound higher here. Scutum won at Epsom on his second start but was only fourth on his handicap debut at Headquarters while Buckleberry only won a modest affair at Lingfield in June by a head last time. POPESWOOD is proving very consistent and it could be his turn to shine as he got a bit unbalanced when third at Chester last time.
