The rise in grade won't stop FACE THE PROBLEM completing a four-timer. The highest-rated in the field, Barry Hills' progressive colt made a mockery of his rivals at Thirsk last month. That was his third run (and win) in three weeks but he looks to be thriving and his natural pace can see him successful again. Choose Wisely would be a popular winner for owner and former trainer David Barker, Cadeaux Pearl had nothing to beat at Sandown last month but was still impressive and represents the leading trainer of juveniles, whilst Arctic Feeling also represents a burgeoning yard and this highly-thought-of colt must run well. New Planet landed a touch on debut and Kieren Fallon is an interesting jockey booking, however the selection may have more to fear from Goodwood winner Pabusar assuming he behaves down at the start as he did last time.
