These small field affairs are notoriously tricky but Party Royal usually likes to make the running and it's hoped he sets a proper pace. He's not easily dismissed if doing so as Aeronwyn Bryn has a 12lb hike in the weights to contend with having landed a double last month with victories at Thirsk and Musselburgh. By contrast, BOLD PREDICTION gets 7lb claimer Joey Haynes back on board and that could give him the edge as seeks to improve on his recent placed efforts including a third at Pontefract last Friday and he rates the selection on that basis.
