Chief Of Men and Uptown Guy may both have won this season but look up against it in this grade, while Puttingonthestyle has yet to win and gets first-time blinkers here. Kempton winner Tick Tock Lover is making his seasonal debut and may need the outing, so this looks between recent maiden winners Maraheb and EMILIO LARGO. The former won easily at Newmarket on his reappearance and is hard to crib, but Sir Henry Cecil boasts an exceptional record with his three-year-olds at this track and his Cadeaux Genereux gelding gets the vote after winning over 7f here last month.
