SMARTY WILD was the only one to get involved from off the pace at Ascot 3 weeks ago and probably has more to offer in this sphere after only 3 outings. Evander would also be high on the shortlist if running here rather than at Wincanton. Last year's winner Erick Le Rouge could bounce back to form with a big run after a wind op.
