Lowther had Expert Fighter back in third when winning over 1m3f at Kempton but attempts this longer trip for the first time. Aegaeus also won at Kempton last month but has been raised 8lb for that success and Azrag makes more appeal stepping up in distance after scoring over 1m4f here earlier in the month. Both Grendisar and Bin Singspiel are raised in class but top weight CAVALEIRO moves in the opposite direction. Marcus Tregoning's charge didn't stay 2m in Listed company last time but finished a close-up fourth over today's trip at Salisbury before that and is 5lb lower today.
