Four times a winner on Polytrack, Harry Buckle is still struggling to make his mark on Turf and never threatened when third over track and trip last time. HOLD ON TIGHT makes more appeal as she has more scope and remains on the same mark as when beaten a couple of lengths on her handicap debut at Windsor last month. Ralph Beckett's filly gets the nod ahead of Royal Dutch, who looks high enough in the weights on her recent fifth here behind Semeen. Cropley and Toptempo are also pretty exposed and will do well to figure.
