HALLSTATT is turned out again quickly under a penalty after winning at Nottingham on Saturday. He's just as effective on Polytrack and must be fancied to complete the hat-trick though Sommersturm would be a big threat if putting his best foot forward. Goldan Jess has won twice on this surface but is better over further and hasn't raced since January while Dubara Reef has been a bit below par lately. Dream Prospector and Medieval Bishop look the pick of the remainder.
