This looks quite competitive as Three Cliffs has been knocking on the door and appears closely matched with Goodwood first and second, Don't Have It Then and Faure Island. First Experience has already won at Wolverhampton and Lingfield this year while Biography will appreciate the drop back to 6f having finished fifth over further at Newmarket last month. A Legacy Of Love is another with claims but Saakhen appears best over 5f. CAPTAIN MYLES missed the break at Chester last time so that run is excused. He'd shown good speed to win over this trip at Nottingham earlier and could take some catching if getting away on terms today.
