GUCCI D'ORO still ran well over 2m last time when attempting to land a hat-trick of amateur races under today's rider. His earlier victories came over shorter trips so he's fancied to return to winning ways in this. Shahrazad and Jack Gilligan teamed up to score at Newbury earlier this month and they can figure again while Rachel Wilson has partnered Teide Peak to victory on a couple of occasions and that pair should also be in the mix. Dazzling Valentine and Waahej could prove best of the rest.
