Three Bards is turned out again quickly after finishing second on the Polytrack earlier this week. He may struggle to overcome the penalty again while Kaiser Wilhelm also has extra to carry, though the latter has really got his act together since tackling 1m4f and can't be ignored. Somemothersdohavem isn't without a chance but CALCULATED RISK came good at Doncaster last month and should have no problems with this longer trip. He can double his tally as Quixote has looked a little one-paced recently and Echo Of Dream looks harshly treated for what he's achieved.
