The McCain yard had a good chance of picking up the first division of this contest and will be looking for a quick double with Master Red. He's a leading contender on his recent win at Newcastle but third-placed ANEEDH is weighted to turn the tables. The latter was beaten only a length and has plenty of scope for improvement. Zamoyski never figured in a handicap at Ascot last time but has decent claims on his earlier placed efforts and so does Fantasy King, a winner at Navan when trained in Ireland last year.
