Emily's Flyer has been raised 6lb since winning over course and distance earlier this month but isn't out of this. Malin Bay has been eased a little in the weights and should be thereabouts while What A Steel is on a decent mark, though struggling to get his head in front. COCKNEY TRUCKER is not the force of old but was only beaten a neck off a 5lb higher mark in a much better race at Doncaster in the spring and McCoy's presence here suggests he's ready to run his race again, despite sharing top weight. He gets the nod though Knockanarrigan could cause problems from near the foot of the handicap.
