Mark Johnston has had a fantastic week and it could get better here as he has two entries with chances. King's Advice's only defeat in eight starts came when a close sixth in the Northumberland Plate and though 7lb higher for his latest victory at Newmarket, when Outbox was behind, doesn't look as though he's finished yet. Stable companion Charles Kingsley stepped up to this trip for the first time and won readily at Newmarket so a 3lb rise looks lenient. BARTHOLOMEU DIAS (NAP) was fourth in the Plate at Newcastle and had earlier finished 3l behind King's Advice at Wolverhampton. However, he was conceding 8lb that day and receives 10lb here so can turn the tables and land this. Corgi has been running very well over 1m4f but has yet to prove he stays this far
