Born To Reason won a lowly classified event over a longer trip here on his penultimate start and that’s the only recent winning form on offer. But DISRUPTOR is less exposed than most and, having slipped down the weights, was beaten only a neck at Kempton last week - he may prove good enough in a weak contest. Newgirlintown is another three-year-old with scope though came up short when favourite at Lingfield last time while Vipin has placed form at the track and Lady Carduros and Ramblow are closely matched on recent running.
