PARVAAZ is progressing well and is fancied to win for the fifth time in six races. A 6lb rise for a recent course and distance win may not be enough to stop this Rahy colt running another big race, especially as he looks versatile in regards to tactics. Bottom-weight Botanist is worth another chance as he drops back in trip after a break and this new mark of 81 looks dangerous, whilst Eolith should come on plenty for her Kempton reappearance ten days ago and she looks a filly to keep on the right side of. The consistent Thunderball, with David Allan booked, and the pair trained by Dandy Nicholls enter the equation, as does Arabian Spirit who was perhaps in front too early when beaten at Ayr a fortnight ago. Of the rest, Kindest, Mujood and the fairly-handicapped pair of Credit Swap and Hacienda make most appeal in a tight concluding handicap.
