Iulus was beaten in a Leicester seller last time and now sports headgear. He's difficult to fancy in this grade while Gold Rules, though starting to look well handicapped, was well behind Carragold over a mile here last month. Mel Brittain's six-year-old can't be ignored while King Of The Celts is only a pound higher than when third over C&D earlier this month. Redcar fourth Count Bertoni could be vulnerable on this softer going, however, and we prefer PINTRADA. He's been taking on better company in the main and his best recent effort came on soft ground at Chester last month.
