Mark Johnston is responsible for three of the top five in a fiercely competitive nursery and none of his trio can be safely ruled out, though Tanseeb finished just ahead of Ifwecan when a half-length second to Flying Bear in a similar contest at Goodwood when Jazz was a close-up third. The winner and Charlie Hills' colt are others for the short-list here while Richard Hughes rides top weight Coulsty, third in a Listed race at Deauville earlier this month. His trainer, Richard Hannon, also saddles Banaadeer who is only a couple of pounds higher than when a close second at Ascot and Ventura Quest won well at Ripon after coming up against a couple of potentially smart two-year-olds here on debut. Mary's Daughter won this at 33/1 last year and THORNABY NASH will probably also start at big odds but he has shown definite signs of ability and Redcar running gives him the beating of Morning Post. With Julie Burke claiming 3lb, he could be very well treated and should be thereabouts granted luck in-running.
