Dorback has obvious claims as he bids for a hat-trick but was engaged to run at Chester yesterday. It's pretty tight between the other contenders though Bronze Beau is 7lb higher than last month's win at Leicester and Tagula Night seems to save his best for Sandown. Taurus Twins may be better over 6f nowadays so a tentative vote goes to GO NANI GO, a winner at Chepstow in May and disadvantaged by having to race wide at Musselburgh last time. The speedy Six Wives could prove best of the remainder but could have been better drawn.
