    In depth


    George William found only one too good when sent off favourite over track and trip last month but Breath Of Air still looks a shade high in the weights judged on recent efforts. Graphite Storm won a lower grade contest at Newmarket last time but RIPP ORF has been competing in tougher races than this. A decent fourth in the valuable International Stakes Handicap at Ascot on his latest start, David Elsworth’s charge has won off higher marks in the past and gets the vote. Piece Of History has yet to win a handicap and looks no nearer doing so but Love Dreams is back on a winning mark if rediscovering his best.
