Dvinsky has been in decent form on the all-weather but ran poorly over C&D last month, while Jonnie Skull disappointed over 6f last time but is on the same mark as when winning over 7f at Southwell earlier. Diddums has place claims along with five time course winner Mandhooma, but a chance is taken on FAWLEY GREEN. He's yet to win a race but looks to have finally slipped down to mark he's capable of winning off judged on his recent second at Lingfield.
