Course regular Bondi Beach Boy has won six times here but was narrowly beaten by Musharrif over track and trip last time. Both are drawn high today along with Granny Roz, Desert Ace and Sky Gypsy while David's Beauty has won twice at Chepstow this year but is upped in class. Tricky Dicky saves his best for Southwell but Entertaining Ben arrives in good form having won at Brighton last month. FUMBO JUMBO hasn’t won anywhere since 2016 but has tumbled down the weights as a consequence and was in the process of running a decent race when hampered at Musselburgh last time. She gets a speculative vote to return to winning ways.
