MIGUEL GRAU, an easy winner over track and trip on his penultimate start, was only beaten half-a-length on his handicap debut at Lingfield over a slightly longer distance. Roger Varian's three-year-old is likely to be a warm order back here, despite a 3lb higher mark. Fame Again likes it here and will have needed his latest run behind Elspeth's Boy. He can make the frame while Al Raqeeb hinted at a revival at Lingfield last month. Mister Marcasite tackles the Polytrack for the first time but still looks a better bet than either Caramack or No Dominion at the weights.
