Formscan By Alan Magee - Shake The Bucket relishes this surface and recorded his fifth course win earlier this month but is set a very different task here dropping down quite significantly in trip along with one of his latest opponents Skukhov. Dimitar has gone up 14lb for two course and distance wins, while stable-companion Akasaka is also suffering at the hands of the assessor for some consistent efforts at this venue of late. All that brings me down in favour of BEAT THE BALLOT. The four-year-old is nicely drawn considering he likes to race near the pace, and appeared to win with a bit in hand under Joseph O’Brien here last month. He obviously handles this track well, and has scope for further improvement.
