Memphis Man pops up when conditions are right and that turned out to be over 7f at Chepstow earlier this month. He's a C&D winner and not easily dismissed but STONECRABSTOMORROW makes more appeal. The latter pushed the much higher rated Efistorm all the way to the line over track and trip last month and is taken to add to his three previous course victories over 5f. Russian Bullet is best on the all-weather hence an 8lb lower mark back on this surface while Ereka registered both her wins over 7f but Baby Dottie may well finish ahead of both.
