DHHAMAAN is drawn in the centre and James Sullivan should be able to get a good position early on. His mount has continued to run well since scoring at Thirsk and can gain victory number 14 on his 89th start. Tony Hollis won a Musselburgh handicap before a poor effort in a Beverley seller so No Quarter looks to have the better chance having run well behind Just Paul here after scoring at Thirsk. Blue Shoes is quite capable of winning in this grade and must go close, though a high draw tempers enthusiasm.
