Ypres is running well and has the advantage of Serena Brotherton in the saddle. He's only 3lb higher than when scoring over 5f at Ripon in June but only just failed to catch Bondi Beach Boy at Beverley last week. Script has been going well without quite getting there and the assessor has given her a chance by dropping her a couple of pounds. The veteran Sir Nod returned to action after a long break to finish a close second at Redcar last month so should go well but finished runner-up to SEE CLEARLY in this a year ago and Tim Easterby's filly, who should get a strong ride from Harriet Bethell, can confirm the form and go in again. Rigolleto doesn't win often but will enjoy the conditions and ran well at Carlisle last time.
