The Malton handler tweeted: "Growl came out late in the draw. We'll be in stall 6 for the Ayr Gold Cup. Looking forward to it."
Top weight Absolutely So will leave from 14, Great St Wilfrid winner Nameitwhatyoulike is in four with Group One scorer G Force in 11.
Magnus Maximus will break from stall 21 and arrives on a hat-trick for trainer Robyn Brisland, having won easily at Chelmsford and Ascot.First-season trainer Brisland, who took over the licence from Nick Littmoden, said: "I think we're in the right place."I couldn't have picked it better if I had all of them to pick from."Everyone else seemed to want to be high but Richard Fahey still went low. Who knows where you want to be."I hope the ground stays as it is, but even if we got a deluge I don't think that would bother him."At the end of the day, he's a front-runner so I think the others are more bothered about where we are than us being bothered about them."Magnus Maximus was cut to 10-1 from 14s by the sponsors following the final declarations, with Growl 5-1 favourite.
