Singeur won this last year on his seasonal debut and is only 2lb higher today. He had Lui Rei behind in last year's renewal but the latter arrives on the back of a win at Goodwood this time around. Magical Macey makes a quick reappearance after a good effort at York on Thursday and should be thereabouts but the vote goes the way of BAJAN TRYST. He had higher rated horses than he faces today behind when third in a Listed sprint at Lingfield in March and Amy Ryan's claim further helps his cause. Foxy Music and Excel Bolt make most appeal of the remainder.
