REGAL ACCLAIM left his maiden form behind when encountering soft ground for the first time on his handicap debut at Carlisle. He stayed on strongly to land the spoils and can follow up in similar conditions. Dubious Escapade could figure on his first start in a handicap if handling the going, while Karma Chameleon appeared not to last home over a mile at Redcar last week and should finish closer here. There should be more to come from Siberian Belle but the remainder are hard to fancy.
