Richard Hannon runs World Record and Keep Calm, both winners of their latest starts on Polytrack with the former likely to come out on top this time after a recent run. Richard Hughes is on board and the Lingfield maiden winner should go well while Greeleys Love should have come on for his run at Musselburgh where he looked in need of this trip. Misfer has started a short-priced favourite on his last two starts but looked a bit one-paced so this longer trip may prove ideal but AINT GOT A SCOOBY looks the one to be on. Clive Cox' colt is progressing nicely and though up 6lb for his Epsom victory he looked to have more in hand than the narrow margin suggests and can complete a quick double.
