There should be plenty of pace on the stands' side with Nameitwhatyoulike a likely leader but last year's winner was drawn low. Singeur is also on the stands' side and likes this track but his seven career victories have come over the minimum trip. GABBIANO is in the centre and, as he continues to make progress and beat a huge field at Ascot in May, he can gain his fourth victory of the year as though Head Space is in cracking form, a 6lb rise for his latest victory at Redcar looks excessive. Mehdi has been gradually coming back to form since joining Dandy Nicholls but Clear Spring looks the main threat as he's been racing in decent sprint company and landed a Class 3 handicap at Epsom last month.
