GOING PLACES has a progressive profile and, with few miles on the clock, there could still be more to come, so he's taken to defy a 6 lb rise for Lingfield and go in again. Chil Chil wasn't seen to best effect in small fields on her last 2 starts, but this type of scenario should see her in a better light, while recent Doncaster-scorer Gunmetal retains plenty of handicapping scope on old form.
Paddy Power Gold Cup winner COOLE CODY enhanced his excellent record here when fourth in the Plate at the Festival last month and should make another bold bid off the same mark back in calmer waters. Conditions will suit the in-form Romain de Senam and he rates the main threat ahead of The Big Bite, who was set to win at Newbury before hanging badly left up the run-in.
A case can be made for all of these so at the likely odds it is worth siding with PERCY'S LAD who showed himself to be a very useful prospect when a gutsy runner-up in the Horris Hill and has an attitude that will serve him very well this season. Legal Attack arrives on the up and heads the list of dangers with the progressive Royal Scimitar and Meydan-scorer Naval Crown not taken lightly either.
A useful contest. JAVA POINT has progressed nicely of late and gets a narrow vote. Dan Skelton's Proschema is of some interest now stepping up to a trip which could suit given the stamina he's shown on the Flat. Course-winner Captain Tom Cat has the potential for better again back from a break and also makes the shortlist.
GLOBAL GIANT has to be considered the one to beat on the back of his easy Kempton win last month. San Donato has finished third in the French 2000 Guineas and second to Mohaather in an Ascot Group 2 on his reappearance runs in 2019 and 2020 so he'll likely be primed for a bold bid. My Oberon is another interesting contender in a good renewal of this Group 3 prize.
LOVE IS YOU has made a very promising start to her career, winning both her starts on differing ground in impressive fashion, and she has the form and the potential to maintain her unbeaten record. Saffron Beach has a similar profile to the selection and looks the obvious threat, while Sacred is also a contender on her best 2-y-o form.
