Veterans Smarty Socks and Harrison George are among several potentially well handicapped in this. Johnny Castle is gradually rediscovering his form after a lay-off and had Diescentric just behind when third to Cape Classic at Doncaster. Willie Haggas' charge is 8lb higher here. Citrus Star and Lutine Bell should be thereabouts again while Idler justified favouritism over 6f here last week and has won over this longer trip on the Polytrack. Decent Fella didn't run very well in a couple of starts at Goodwood last month but has every chance on his fifth to Bonnie Brae in the Bunbury Cup here in July while Esprit De Midas won at Kempton three weeks ago, though isn't as well treated on Turf. Poetic Dancer was only beaten two lengths when fourth to Baheeja on only her second start of the campaign at Salisbury but it's her stable companion ACCESSION that really catches the eye here. He's been running a lot better than his form figures suggest and was again noted staying on strongly on his first try over this trip at Doncaster earlier in the month. He can provide a winner for Gerald Mosse.
