INCOMPARABLE never figured in a higher grade last time but has won twice at this level since December beating College Doll and Under Approval in the process. David Parkes' allowance can help him return to winning ways in this. Very First Blade is usually thereabouts at this venue and Dont Tell Nan went close here in August. Speightstowns Kid has been placed over 6f here of late but still looks a shade high in the weights.
