Four recent winners on show but it could pay to look outside them as NEW FALCON looks to have every chance. She finished runner-up over track and trip in June and is 5lb lower today including an apprentices allowance. Emmuska is proving best on the all-weather while this is tougher than the claimer Silverware won at Beverley. Brighton winner Jewelled is dropping back in trip and Yojimbo has been raised a harsh-looking 8lb for scoring at Chepstow. Siouxperhero makes more appeal upped 5lb for a win at Leicester earlier this month.
