There's no reason why SOLWAY DORNAL won't go close in this. He's won over 3m2f and can race off his chase mark in this off which he was second at Cartmel last month. The majority of his rivals - including Pyjama Game, Marlborough House and Wakhan have plenty to prove at present - but Champion Versions wasn't beaten far at Huntingdon last time and appears to have the beating of Moon Melody on collateral form.
