Red Dynamite comes here in good form and will take some beating with conditions and trip to suit but we will chance SPRINGAWAY to have his measure. After dotting up here over 3m 2f in a novices' handicap chase the veteran was off the track for two-and-a-half years until a recent spin over an inadequate trip over hurdles. Provided he doesn't 'bounce' after that then, with few miles on the clock for his age, he could come back to win again. Isla Pearl Fisher has dropped to a very lowly mark and is well worth another try at this trip, while Matmata De Tendron has won here over further and acts on a sound surface, though the handicapper may just have control for now.
