AP McCoy partnered LOOSE PREFORMER to success at Wetherby in May and a repeat effort will be good enough to come out best in this company. Groomed is weighted to go close and should do so though he's yet to win over hurdles in 12 attempts and Lifetime has a shout if reproducing his earlier third at Kelso. Raktiman was placed at Fakenham back in April and makes most appeal of the remainder on his first outing since then.
