SICUR has gone close on his last couple of starts and finished eight lengths clear of the nearest challenger when second at Nottingham last time. Luca Cumani's colt makes most appeal ahead of Aneedh, a runner-up at this track recently on only his second outing. Glory City is more exposed but still capable of going close and Mandy The Nag wasn't beaten that far on her debut on the Polytrack. Duroble Man and Alzavola are others expected to improve and Common Courtesy is worth noting on her debut.
