Mitchell had been going well before gaining the second victory of his career in a Redcar seller and he'll enjoy the conditions. ALLURING STAR completed a hat-trick in the spring and hasn't gone up too much in the weights. She still looks capable of winning at this level and is taken to gain her eighth career victory. Mysterial has dropped far enough in the ratings to believe he could return to form but Icy Blue appears better on Polytrack these days. Imaginary World has been in good form recently and is just 3lb higher than her victory at Southwell in February so she rates a threat with Jason Hart's claim aiding her cause.
