I still really like Bibulous as a horse so it will be interesting to see if he lines up but given he was withdrawn last week on the account of the ground being too quick with no rain forecast I can’t really see him running here? Either way the hat-trick seeking DORA PENNY must have major claims. She is by Mayson so you’d think she would be better suited by a bit of cut as well and she proved that beating a good yardstick in Peggoty at Ffos Las on penultimate start. She managed to prove her effectiveness on a quicker surface to score at Leicester last time though and is clearly progressing fast now. She is turned out quickly under a 6lb penalty but is difficult to get away from in her current mood. If Bibulous does come out that would leave Rabat the main threat as she clocked a career best at Yarmouth and she should give her running again.

The way Fox Degree won at Ffos Las was impressive and while she gave ground away at the start at Newmarket going badly right you still had to be impressed with the winner IMMORTAL BEAUTY. She went through the race like a filly improving and given how strong she was at the line this step up to 7f now looks another positive so she will be hard to beat here off a 5lb rise. Kiss N Cuddle will likely put good pace to the race but could be taken on for the lead by Kingdom Of Dreams which would be an ideal scenario. Handicap debutant Sunningdale is probably the main danger as he shaped with promise when fourth at Newbury and an opening mark of 79 doesn’t look too taxing. Double O showed up well for a long way at Chester and might be in there pitching again here but ultimately will likely find one or two too strong late.
