Thrust Control beat Eeny Mac in a seller at this track before going in again at Catterick last time. He's upped in class off a 5lb higher mark today and will need to improve further to land the hat-trick. David Nicholls has strong claims with Mujaadel and Saturday's Thirsk runner-up Llewellyn both capable of going close. Majestic Dream could also figure ahead of stablemate Aerodynamic, but FAYR FALL is preferred. The latter looks on a decent mark for his reappearance with an apprentice claiming 5lb so Tim Easterby's charge gets the vote.
