Venegazzu could easily round off what should be a good day for his yard as he won over 1m4f here last month when first tried in a visor. However, the Dubawi colt was beaten three lengths by ENERY on a return visit to the track and Mark Johnston's charge is fancied to come out on top again over this longer trip despite re-opposing on 5lb worse terms. Cape Safari enjoys a 6lb turnaround in the weights than when beaten more than four lengths by Porgy here eight days ago but that may not be enough to turn the tables and she also looks held by Venegazzu on earlier running at Newmarket while Parhelion returns from a break and Sherman McCoy has been way below par this term.
