AMULET continues to improve and won for the second time in her last three starts when successful at Chepstow. She's unproven on today's ground but that also goes for most of the opposition. Hipster was placed in heavy going at Salisbury last time, but in a claimer and this is tougher, while Duke Of Grazeon has been raised a harsh-looking 8lb for a narrow-margin win at Pontefract. The Scuttler looks a bigger threat on his latest second at Windsor ahead of Excellent Puck and the Hannon-trained duo, Mystical Moment and Equitissa.
