FAIR ALONG has to shoulder more weight this year but Phillip Hobbs decision to miss the Cesarewitch could have been a wise one and we take him to follow up last year's success. Tidal Bay runs here in preference to the Charlie Hall. He has the class to win this though seems to have become increasingly more moody as time has gone on. Blazing Bailey has been a perennial underachiever during his career but he is in receipt of 8lbs from the market principals today. Kayf Aramis has had a couple of outings on the flat and it will be interesting to see if they front run this afternoon. Duc De Regniere has been well placed by connections and has gone well in the past when fresh. Majestic Mayhem has ran in Irish points though this is a big leap in grade.
