Several of these have been knocking on the door lately and the likes of Seeking Magic, Jack My Boy and Oil Strike could all be in the firing-line again. It will be interesting to see if there is any money for the once-raced Iron Range after a year on the sidelines, while Dasho is in good form and recent Bath winner Maze scored under Lucy Barry over 5f here in June. A high draw may have scuppered Macdillon's chance, however, while Munaaseb has been very disappointing since winning on his reappearance at Lingfield and this is only his second start on turf. PERFECT PASTIME has gone close in his last three starts over this trip and, though edging up the weights, deserves to get his head in front and receives a tentative vote.
