Formscan - A wide-open contest in which preference is for PERFECT PLAY. A comfortable winner over an extended 1m 2f at Chester last week, he looks capable of defying a 5lb rise and a step up in class may not be enough to stop him mounting another bold bid. Fox Journey seems an obvious threat, given he scored with something in hand at Newmarket most recently, and the son of Roaring Lion must enter calculations off 9lb higher. Course scorer Kadovar is another to consider stepping back up in distance.
