Richard Hannon runs two in this Listed contest with jockey bookings suggesting Baltic Knight is the stable pick. Ocean Tempest has already had a good year, winning the Lincoln in March and scoring twice subsequently in this grade. But he has to concede weight all round and may find the ground too lively. Boom And Bust has conditions in his favour and generally takes on better horses than this. He shouldn't be ignored while Free Wheeling's represents last year's winning connections and won at Meydan in the spring. SHORT SQUEEZE failed to figure when making his reappearance in the Royal Hunt Cup at Ascot but he was a very progressive sort last year and may be worth another chance with that run under his belt. Custom Cut makes more appeal than handicappers Fire Ship and Roserrow among the others.
