Gobi Sunset(6.40 Wolverhampton)
Closely related to 7f turf winner Dark Magic, he got the hang of things late on his debut over 5f at Leicester last month and can get off the mark over this extra furlong.
Improved run when third in the Sagaro and is 4lb well in for it. Has the plum draw in stall one and, while usually held up, it will be a surprise if he gives up his track position to too many. Trainer always reckoned he wanted cut so the conditions are perfect.

Sir Busker(3.10 Ascot)
Promising reappearance over seven furlongs at Lingfield a week ago and should be suited by this shorter trip.
Austrian School(3.35 Chester)
Course winner who enjoyed a progressive 2018 and his form went to the next level witha six-length win at Musselburgh on his seasonal reappearance. As a low-drawn prominent-racer he should enjoy a favourable passage and has also won on soft ground.
