A mandatory 6lb penalty may not stop URBAN SPACE following up last week's course success. Cereal Killer is likely to be thereabouts, while Maslak and Shooting Party are others worth bearing in mind if they attract the interest of the betting public on course beforehand. The last named is a more adventurous option, so might be best played for a place in the frame if all 10 acceptors stand their ground. Maslak also has the habit of finding a few more determined in a finish, so would never be one for a maximum investment at this level. Cereal Killer handles the track well last time out and, assuming the evening has panned out well for Richard Hughes, the jockey's confidence to go for a run may be a decisive tool by this stage of the evening. However, Urban Space created a favourable impression seven days ago and, as he seems to raise his game at Windsor, the son of Sulamani is expected to be very hard to master at his favourite course.
