SONGBURST takes a big step up in trip on his handicap debut having scored over a mile at Kempton last month. He's related to middle-distance winners and could prove the one to beat if lasting home. Golden Waters scored at Brighton on her penultimate start and has every chance back at this level after failing to figure in much better company at Newmarket last time, while Chain Of Events has solid claims if forgiven a below par effort last time. Flying Power looks best of the rest.
