Formscan - GLOIRE D'ATHON did it very nicely at Sandown last time, making it four wins from his last five starts, and he continues to look firmly on the upgrade for the Sarah Humphrey yard. The son of Doctor Dino is now only 3lb higher and given the manner of that latest success, he is taken to go in once more. The main danger might be Raffle Ticket, who struck by just over a length at Worcester last time and could get involved off a 5lb higher rating. Walk In Clover is in fine fettle and has to be considered.
