Golden Future has every chance dropped in class having gone close over shorter trip at Musselburgh last time but MADRASA may just edge him out. The latter scored by five lengths at Redcar last month and though raised 9lb for that success, there should be more to come from Keith Reveley's charge attempting 2m for the first time. Jeu De Roseau won this off a lower mark last year but arrives badly out form this time round while it was soft ground at Musselburgh on Tuesday when Jan Smuts got his head in front. Rock Relief went very close over C&D last time and makes most appeal of the remainder.
