Looking well-weighted on his old form CAPE VALE gets the nod now back with David Nicholls. A winner on soft ground at Ayr in his first spell with the yard the Cape Cross gelding didn't pull up any trees in Ireland but given he did well when last with this stable his mark looks light. Grissom only found a well-handicapped runner too good last time out and given he goes in these conditions he is respected from a couple of lb higher in the weights. Paul Green has been among the winners and he sends out Legal Eagle and his chance is clear after finding just one too good from this rating last time. Cape Vale has the call now back with David Nicholls.
