Go Nani Go was only beaten a neck at Kempton last time but is 3lb higher here. Divine Call runs off the same mark as when runner-up over 6f at Warwick, however, and looks in better form than stable companion Jarrow. Dear Maurice ended last season with a victory at Brighton while the mare Comptonspirit has slipped to a decent mark but we'll take a chance on the fitness of the equally well-treated WOODEN KING. He's a speedy sort who ran well first time up last year and he's now 2lb lower than when successful at Salisbury last July. Night Trade is preferred to Stonecrabstomorrow of the others.
