ORATORIO'S JOY stayed on strongly to catch the front-running Nubar Boy over this trip at Leicester 11 days ago and has only been raised 2lb. She can score again under Richard Hughes as the three-year-old Golden Journey has gone up 4lb for scoring at Goodwood. I'm Harry made a bold bid to defy his new mark at Doncaster on Friday but that was over 1m4f while course specialist Choral Festival has lost her way a little lately. If I Were A Boy went close here last month and is well enough treated to get involved again with Josh Baudains taking off 5lb.
