All The Winds finished well ahead of Noble Alan when runner-up over a shorter trip here last time but it could be closer over this distance. Layline is another with something to prove over 2m while Toughness Danon remains without a win in 15 starts on the all-weather. Murcar may be a shade ring-rusty on his return to the Flat given he refused to race when lining-up over hurdles earlier this month which leaves us with MONTJESS. This longer trip should prove no problem for Tom Dascombe's filly after finding only one too good over 1m6f here last Friday and she gets the nod.
