Phaenomena has her first start over this trip but looks certain to be suited on the balance of last season's progressive form and a long absence is rarely a problem for one from this yard. Bin Singspiel improved massively when stepped up to this sort of trip and further at the backend of last season and should make a very good stayer this campaign. Totalize has generally competed at a much higher level and any ease in the going would do his chances no harm but it's EAGLE ROCK, who has won twice over 2m on this track, who can land the spoils as an expected strong gallop would play to his strengths. Aramist has won three of his last four though the only time he was beaten was over this trip. Mr Snoozy generally wins races over further than this and is 8lb higher than his last winning mark.
