Greensward followed up in a handicap here last time after landing a claimer on the track but is another 4lb higher and the hat-trick may be beyond him. Evident is lightly-raced and should go close if taking to the surface as he wasn't disgraced on his handicap debut but Amethyst Dawn is hard to win with nowadays and Gabrial The Great has become a shade disappointing. Iceblast returns from a break but Declamation is better than he showed at Redcar in August and can't be discounted. GRILLETTO is back on a winning mark and caught the eye here three weeks ago. He'll need luck in-running from stall one but gets a tentative vote.
