Toledo Gold and Koh Samui finished one-two at Cartmel last time when separated by just half a length and it's hard to choose between them here. City Line is entered to run here last night and is respected if doing so whilst Lord Of Drums needs to put a heavy fall behind him when last seen. ROBIN'S COMMAND has gone up 32lb no less since winning at Kelso in April but he's turned into a really tough, uncomplicated front runner for Rose Dobbin and was game as a pebble here the last day when making it three wins from the last four. He's been raised 7lb for that victory but still looks the one to be with.
