Meandmyshadow went close at Haydock off today's mark last week but Guishan has been raised 5lb for finishing second at Musselburgh last month. Moonspring has been in fine form on the Polytrack and can also figure but KHATIBA is less exposed. The latter is equipped with headgear for the first time having finished a close-up fourth at Goodwood last time and that may bring about enough improvement to land this. Penny Garcia has slipped back down to a winning mark and can get involved.
