A huge field for this seller and the winner will almost certainly need luck in-running. CLASSIC DESCENT has been holding his own in better company and has a decent draw in stall six. His cause wasn't helped at Ayr three weeks ago when PJ McDonald dropped his whip and he looks certain to give supporters a run for their money in this. So Bazaar has dropped to a very lenient mark and could go close if handling the big drop in distance, while Lujano wasn't beaten far off this mark at Redcar in June though hasn't reproduced that form since. Hits Only Jude and Whispering Spirit also have the past form to figure but could struggle from double-digit draws.
