The Strig steps up in trip as he bids for a hat-trick and is also upped in class. Oh So Spicy is another taking on better company after scoring at Yarmouth while Prince Regal failed to cope with a rise in the weights last time having won at Epsom before that. Miss Diva has slipped down the handicap and may finish closer but TIDAL'S BABY is preferred. He remains in good form having won twice already this season including over track and trip and a repeat of his latest effort at Goodwood should see him in the firing-line once again.
