My Inspiration attempted to make all at Chester last time but was no match for the winner. Front-running tactics were also employed with Makin The Rules at Ripon last time but he was headed some way from home. A fast pace should play into the hands of FOXY CLARETS as he just failed at Ayr last month having tumbled down the weights. Ryan Moore picks up the reins for this and he can return to winning ways. Jaeger Train would have a shout if taking part but was engaged to run at Ayr yesterday.
