A tricky sprint as those with the best recent form have the worst of the draw. Still, today's opposition is so moderate that DISPOL GRAND may be able to overcome a high stall number. He didn't get the best of runs at Thirsk last time, but had shown signs of a return to form before that and a first-time visor could also bring about some improvement. Maryolini has claims off her current mark but has had no luck with the draw either, while Duke Of Rainford has ran a couple of poor races since winning at Kempton in January. Poppy's Rocket was placed in a seller here last month and makes most appeal of the remainder.
