DAAWEITZA still looked in need of the run when fifth over 1m4f at Doncaster last time. Brian Ellison's charge is now a pound lower than when successful over a mile here in September and looks to have a big chance now his sights are lowered again. King Kurt could only finish third when favourite for a classified stakes at Newmarket last month and is now 13lb higher than when scoring at Catterick in May, but Adlington could be interesting as he was clearly out of his depth behind Sea Moon at York. Beverley winner Eltheeb may be the pick of the remainder though Amazing Blue Sky is in good heart and has place claims again.
