All eyes here will be on Sir Mark Prescott's filly Alwilda as she steps up to 2m for the first time. But she faces no easy task carrying a penalty for her victory at Sandown last week and is unlikely to be much of a price. At the likely odds, we'd rather take a chance on DAZINSKI who has dropped to a very fair mark and was only beaten a neck the last time he appeared in this grade. He could reverse York running with Rocktherunway on better terms. Tartan Jura has the ability to figure if in the mood while Man Of Plenty won on his latest start at Nottingham and would enter calculations if the rains arrive. Brasingaman Eric is another with each-way claims.
