Warrior Of Light was a cosy winner at Ffos Las last month but has been raised 8lb. The handicapper has been more lenient with Boite, dropped 2lb after showing signs of a resurgence at Goodwood behind Van Percy. Collateral form with the latter gives NAUTILUS every chance and the Gosden charge gets the nod back on Turf for the first time since winning at Leicester last year. Esteaming and Nullarbor Sky are others to consider.
