Noodles Blue Boy is up 5lb for his recent C&D victory but could still make his presence count while Flash City also has claims having beaten Ertikaan a length when third in heavy ground at Doncaster last month. The latter may need a longer trip on today's faster surface and BEAUTY PAGEANT makes more appeal. Ed McMahon's mare will have come on for her recent reappearance and can add to last year's three victories which included one over C&D. Haadeeth found the soft ground against him last time and can finish closer today.
