Brick Rising has only been raised a couple of pounds for winning over this trip at Windsor and shouldn't be far away again. Nateeja was beaten less than two lengths at Warwick last time, just ahead of Burma Days, and Alshan Fajer has been placed in his last two starts at Kempton though, like Knight's Parade, is already starting to look exposed. A few of these have the scope to do much better now going handicapping with Dusky Lark near the top of the list, though his stamina will have to be taken on trust over the extra. RANCHER is by High Chaparral out of a Shirley Heights mare so this trip is unlikely to be a problem as he was getting outpaced over a mile last season. Harry Dunlop's colt may represent a bit of value on his reappearance.
