LUCKSTER never threatened the winner when runner-up at Bath last time but is dropping back down a grade and can add to his earlier victory over 2m at Kempton. Mr Burbridge has claims on his latest third over track and trip while Geanie Mac is another who may finish closer today as she drops down in class. Dubara Reef has been in better form on the Turf of late and could figure and Train Hard may get involved if lasting home over today's longer trip.
