This looks the slightly easier of the two divisions and BOOTS AND SPURS is fancied to follow up last week's win at Carlisle. It was heavy going on that occasion and, given he scored by over three lengths eased down, a 6lb penalty may not be enough to anchor him here. Le Chat D'Or is suited by ground and trip and should be thereabouts while last year's third Silver Rime can also be given a chance off his current mark. Warfare scored at Ascot back in May and is dropped in class after a lay-off and Extraterrestrial may also figure now finally back on a winning mark. Recent Redcar winner Ingleby Exceed is still improving and is another to consider.
