GEORGE CINQ has suffered a couple of narrow-margin defeats of late and can gain consolation in this. Runner-up at Ascot before beaten a nose on the Polytrack last time, Michael Bell's charge can confirm latest running with Derwent and go one better. Hipster has lost his way a little since scoring at Lingfield early in the year and Messila Star makes more appeal on her handicap debut having won at the same track in April. A course and distance winner on his debut, Ogbourne Downs may figure if fully recovered from whatever ailed him last time while Harry Bosch will need further improvement upped in class after winning over track and trip three weeks ago.
