Borug was just touched off from a similar mark at Wolverhampton and is undoubtedly well treated at present. It's been almost two years since he last got his head in front but could easily put that right today. Choral Festival tends to reserve her best for Windsor but did win over C&D in June off a 7lb lower mark while Poetic Lord came back to form over track and trip 13 days ago and should be thereabouts again. LOOKING ON is still searching for a first win but is getting closer and was finishing best of all when second at Epsom last time. Also runner-up over this C&D in July, Henry Candy's four-year-old can finally open his account today with most of the remainder having questions to answer at present.
