This appears the stronger and more competitive of the two divisions on paper with MITCHELL taken to build on a promising Haydock debut behind two potentially useful juveniles in Secret Look and Red Explorer. David Barron's charge looked as if he'd appreciate another furlong that day but sticks to five here, although the stiff nature of the track should be in his favour. Red Highlites has shown enough the last twice to warrant close attention whilst it's noteworthy to see the Tim Easterby pair of Art Mistress and Red Cobra revert to the minimum trip. They are preferred in that order.
