RISE TO GLORY returned an easy winner at Musselburgh last week when beating Keep It Dark with Outlaw Torn tailed off. A 6lb penalty is halved by Michael Murphy's allowance and he can follow-up. Alluring Star has every chance back on the Turf after a couple of placed efforts on the Polytrack but recent Wolverhampton winner Chosen Forever prefers the all-weather and may struggle today. Feeling Good has tumbled down the weights and Jupiter Fidius has a shout off his current mark.
