Credit Swap won this last year en route to victory in the Cambridgeshire but it would be a surprise if any of these make it to the big race at Newmarket. Mujrayaat is tried in a hood after disappointing on his latest start at Beverley, while Hawaana has been fighting a losing battle with the handicapper since notching a double at Doncaster and Epsom earlier in the summer. Fantasy Gladiator had Nelson's Bounty behind when third in a valuable handicap at Kempton 11 days ago. He's rated 5lb lower on turf and has every chance of ending a frustrating sequence here but still has something to find with TOP DIKTAT on Sandown running last month. The three-year-old gets the vote, though Rock Anthem is starting to look dangerously well handicapped and should be winning soon.
