Musselburgh winner Kibaar was never travelling around Chester's turns next time and should do better here. Pine Ridge only beat Ginzan by a neck at Salisbury but has scope for further improvement. Sandfrankskipsgo beat Majestic Hero at Newbury last month but then disappointed at Epsom while 5f on fast ground might not suit Windsor third Stake Acclaim or Dark Shot. BASHIBA has been thriving on quick going and produced a devastating late burst to get back to winning ways at Doncaster. A 6lb rise is cancelled out by Lewis Edmunds' claim and he may come out on top again if his young rider can keep him covered up. Princess Tansy looks best of the rest.
