It may benefit WAR GLORY not to take on the other pace influences, and he can account for Daira Prince if tactics are got right.
A winner at Redcar a month ago, the gelding comes into this contest off the back of a solid effort at Class 2 level last time out. Beaten just a length on that occasion, so it would be wrong to assume that he can’t make his presence felt in this race.
Beat War Glory 2l at Windsor in the summer (1lb worse off now); exposed but very capable.

Landed the double when winning at Ripon in June, though the gelding has hit something a of a wall since. Struggled in Class 2 company in each of his last two races, though an improved effort now back down in grade cannot be ruled out.
Did too much early on the last twice; still on a conquerable mark if getting basics right.

Continued to move forward when winning at Brighton on his penultimate start, while his effort in defeat last time out was a pleasing one. Step down to a mile doesn’t appear to be an obvious positive, though the gelding is a horse in form right now.
Triple 1m2f scorer; highly likely to try to make all, but 3lb rise to contend with.

Regained the winning thread at Lingfield back in February, and while he’s not won since, he has run some decent races in defeat. What’s more, the mount of Charles Bishop is now back down to his last winning mark.
Rare below-par effort in Ascot 0-90 classified latest; rivalry here for the early lead.

Hasn’t won for well over a year, while he looks somewhat out of his depth in this line-up. Recent efforts at this level, all of which have been disappointing, suggest that he’ll struggle to compete.
Several near misses on Polytrack in past year; improvement on latest turf effort required.
