Tim Easterby has won the last two renewals, including with Dance King in 2017, and the latter can race off a lower mark today. Stablemate Appointed is another to consider after scoring at Ripon while Mutamaded finished in front of Where's Jeff when runner-up at York and will be winning off his current mark soon. The progressive Regular Income won again when successful at Chester and is only 3lb higher while Rake's Progress scored over today’s trip at Goodwood recently and also has a shout. But VOLCANIC SKY (NAP) will be sharper for a comeback run at Kempton in better company than this. He looked the likely the winner on that occasion until fading inside the final furlong and Saeed bin Suroor’s charge should make a bold bid today.
