Travel On has been gelded since disappointing at Chelmsford back in May and headgear is applied on his reappearance. Deal A Dollar was having his first start since May when failing to figure at Goodwood and blinkers are added to a tongue-tie for this. He still finished in front of Grey D'Ars last time, however, while Severance drops down in class today and may finish closer. But ZUBA should also find this easier than when finishing a close-up fifth at the Shergar Cup meeting at Ascot last time and Amanda Perrett’s colt gets the vote having scored overt track and trip earlier.
