    In depth

    Verdict

    A drop back to the minimum might suit Ancient Astronaut as he was prominent for a long way over 6f at Newmarket last time. Straightothepoint has been knocking on the door again while Tallinski has been placed twice on fast ground on Turf recently and was second on his only previous run here. DUKE COSIMO has dropped in the weights again since his latest third over track and trip and that’s a bonus as he’s been running well since the summer. Lady Cristal has a squeak but Scuzeme has more scope so looks best of the rest.
