Cheyenne Red was only beaten half-a-length when a 66/1 chance over course and distance earlier this month. If that was no fluke, he must have leading claims in this. Adiator is lightly raced and was sent off favourite for a similar contest at Leicester last month only to blow his chance at the start. He's another for the short-list though his rider that day, Seb Spencer, now partners stablemate Eium Mac. CARRIE'S MAGIC has a promising amateur on board and may be the answer to this as she's been in better form lately, though Beverley scorer Silly Billy is an obvious danger if handling the drop back in distance.
