Richard Hannon has a strong hand in this represented by recent Sandown winner Biography and Midnite Angel with Paul Hanagan on board. The latter was outclassed in last week's Albany Stakes at Ascot but should go close stepping up in trip, though it could pay to stick with INTERMATH. He won on his racecourse debut over track and trip a fortnight ago when Treaty Of Paris was well beaten and can follow up with normal progress. Miracle Of Medinah landed his maiden at Lingfield in good style and could also figure.
