KRIS SPIN ploughed through the mud to finish second at Chepstow last time. Dropping down in class and preferring today's quicker ground, Richard Lee's charge can defy top weight and come out best. Doncaster winner Warden Hill ran well in a Grade 2 novice event behind Urban Hymn in January but was well beaten on his only previous start in a handicap. Cyrien Star looks handicapped to the hilt having landed a treble at the end of last year but Beauboreen is better than his latest run suggests. Ivy Gate and Templebraden may get involved on their handicap debuts while Heavenstown also has a shout off his current mark. Bourne hasn't won for sometime but is not out of this if at his best and makes more appeal than stablemate Alderley Rover.
