LORD LAMINGTON bounced back to winning ways when scoring at Sandown at the end of last month, making all of the running over this trip. The son of Australia went up 3lb for that success and appears capable of further progression over the likes of stable companion Message, who was no match for the winner on his latest start at Brighton, and Mr Zoom Zoom.
MESSAGE had a couple of possible excuses for his Brighton reversal last time and is worth another chance as his previous close second at Doncaster suggests he has a race in him from this sort of mark. Stablemate Lord Lamington may provide the main threat.
BRASS BUCKLE dotted up in a similar event at Mahoning in March and has been competing at a higher level since. Back down in class, he gets the vote to edge out Capiche and Gabe's Flag, who were only split by a length here earlier in the month.
