It's a long time since Colinca's Lad won off a mark this high and he may fail in his hat-trick bid. After wins at Epsom and Lingfield, Count Ceprano also looks high enough in the weights now but you can never rule out Choral Festival around here and John Bridger's mare won a shade cosily over C&D eight days ago when both Lang Shining and Edgeworth were behind. Halyard, Blue Spartan and Super Duplex all have some sort of chance but, despite a 6lb penalty, URBAN SPACE should take all the beating if in the same mood as when winning over 1m4f here last week. The five-year-old is still well treated on his best form.

Edgeworth (IRE) 9-1 (9-4) Raced in 6th and off the pace, some headway when stumbled and switched right over 1f out, plugged on inside final furlong, 5th of 10, 6l behind Choral Festival (9-3) at Windsor 1m 2f hcp 0-75 (5) gf.
