Dual course and distance winner SECRET CITY finished fourth in better company here in June. Now 2lb lower, Robin Bastiman's charge gets a speculative vote back at this venue. Celtic Sixpence went close in soft ground at Nottingham last time while Red Cape has been running well in plating races of late. Layla's Hero posted a better effort at Redcar on Wednesday but last month's Hamilton winner Gran Canaria Queen could prove a bigger danger back over today's 6f.
