DUNN'O hasn't really been firing this year but Dandy Nicholls' seven-year-old takes a significant drop in grade here and is very well handicapped on last season's form. He could have most of these in trouble if allowed his own way out in front and may represent a bit of value. Paramour was gambled on at Thirsk last month but given too much to do. The step back up in trip should suit and he won't be far away if ridden closer to the pace. Duster met trouble in-running behind First Post in a better race at Goodwood 12 days ago and is another with claims but She's A Character only won a claimer at Hamilton last time and Sabratha needs to improve again on her victory at Ayr. Pontefract fourth Yojimbo may be the pick of the remainder.
