DON PADEJA took a step forward with an easy win at Leicester last time. A 6lb penalty is unlikely to prevent him following up given today's longer trip will suit. Green To Gold's earlier win at Doncaster came in an amateurs' race and he looks high enough in the weights now but Laser Blazer may improve for the longer trip. Guards Chapel arrives on the back of a win over hurdles and is closely matched with Honourable Knight on earlier running over 2m at Lingfield.
