Plenty of these have achieved a handicap rating and OMAR KHAYYAM comes out best of those. He finished second over 1m2f last time but the half-brother to St Leger hero Milan among others looks sure to appreciate this longer trip and he gets the vote. Vimiero should also last home judged on his placed efforts over hurdles while Thecornishcockney arrives in better form than Waving and could be in the mix. The remainder have plenty to find unless Sauvage L'il shows a big improvement on her form so far.
