Edmaaj was beaten by Dormouse at Bangor in May and is actually 8lb worse off. He's proving hard to win with and recent course and distance third Dazinski, though successful five times on the Flat, remains winless over timber. Pure Style hasn't raced since scoring at Uttoxeter in March but has scope and can't be ruled out. He may be better handicapped than the hat-trick seeking Dealing River. IGUACU is already a 10-year-old but put his Flat speed to good use here last month and, with ground still riding fast, could stage a repeat.
