Avon Breeze wasn't beaten that far despite finishing only fifth in a higher grade handicap at Ripon and can figure but Ladweb has gone off the boil since landing a hat-trick back in May. Agerzam has had just the one outing since January but has claims on last year's form on the all-weather while Windsor winner Breccbennach has a bit to find on more recent running with HOLLEY SHIFTWELL. The latter went close over track and trip the last time she raced over the minimum distance and gets a speculative vote to come good again today. Touch The Clouds may prove best of the rest off his current mark.
