Serena Brotherton has partnered five of the last 10 winners but Restive doesn’t arrive in the best of form. Gas Monkey landed a hat-trick earlier in the season but remains 10lb higher than his latest success and Rake's Progress looks better treated having won off a similar mark over a shorter trip at Goodwood in June. Nabhan won one of these events at Epsom under Jessica Llewellyn last month and has every chance but BREATHABLE bids for a hat-tick having been steered home by Emily Easterby at Carlisle recently and may prove the one to side with.
