Amahoro was second over course and distance two weeks ago and is only a pound higher. She's likely to be thereabouts as he should again beat third Grecian. High On Life won his maiden here last month and has a good chance of reversing Wolverhampton form from last year with Chorlton Manor on better terms but there's a chance that AUTUMNS BLUSH may be a bit better that this grade if she's trained on. Jeremy Noseda's filly contested a Listed race at Newbury last year after winning at Yarmouth but spoiled her chance with a tardy start- she remains unexposed. Online Alexander and Royal Birth also make their seasonal reappearances and are open to improvement.
