YORK GLORY has a penalty for his victory in a similar grade at Lingfield last week but is still nicely treated on his best form on Turf and can notch a quick double. Last Sovereign was beaten in a claimer over an extra furlong here last time but did beat Whozthecat at Newmarket in August and can confirm his superiority over that rival. Tango Sky needs to bounce back from a poor run at Nottingham last month but Profile Star could be interesting if fully wound-up as he's proven over C&D and was taking on decent opposition when last seen at York. David Barron's charge makes more appeal than Six Wives and recent winners Alaskan Bullet and Rylee Mooch while Moorhouse Lad doesn't look the force of old.
