Sky Cape made his handicap debut on the all-weather after winning his maiden at Pontefract but pulled too hard in the early stages. He'll need to settle better here to get home and may struggle to give the weight to BERMONDSEY. The Galileo colt was last of three when favourite at Haydock in July but wouldn't have been beaten far had he not been eased inside the final furlong and may still be on a decent mark. Captain Felix, Majrooh, Jupiter Custos and St Saviour were all winners last time while Zamperini and Brutus can't be ignored but Jumeirah Glory probably needs a bit of leniency from the handicapper.
