Henry Cecil has a strong hand in this contest and ALDEDASH gets the vote. He kept on well to take third place in the closing stages over today's trip at Windsor earlier this month and will have come on for that pipe-opener. The presence of Tom Queally suggests he's preferred to stablemate and newcomer Baltic Light who looks one to note for the future. Major Domo is dropped back in trip and has a bit to find judged on his modest effort at Kempton last time and My Elliemay looks up against it on what she's shown so far.
