The handicapper will catch up with Alcaeus at some stage and he'll be a short price here. A four-timer is still a possibility for Sir Mark Prescott's colt but this is a little more competitive than recent starts. Afro scrambled home on soft ground on her reappearance at Lingfield when Vandross finished third but NATEEJA is another who has improved since stepping up in trip. She got outpaced over 1m4f when fifth at Lingfield last time so the extra quarter-mile today should be right up her street. Deficit and Alshan Fajer have place claims again and look best of the rest.
