Gold Rules and Daliance step up in trip and the latter makes most appeal after going close at Redcar last month. Royal Etiquette could figure back over today's distance for the first time since scoring at Windsor in June and Hyperlink should go well again after his recent win at Ripon. Kames Park has been threatening to add to his four course wins but patience has run out with Sky Khan, a beaten favourite at Kempton last time. TAKE THE STAGE won't have to find much improvement on his handicap bow to land this and the Azamour colt is taken to end what could be a successful day for Jeremy Noseda with another winner.
