Indigo Iris has his first start for new connections and the former Richard Hannon inmate is one to note though this looks tough as he begins his handicap career with a high draw. Coppertop bounced back to form with a fine effort behind Khelino here two weeks ago and it's about time she was losing her maiden tag but it's RED LASER who is handed the vote despite an outside berth. He's 6lb higher than when landing a minor handicap over the C&D but has continued to run well and Conor Hoban is excellent value for his 5lb claim. Little Village is consistent enough but has never won beyond 6f and Jumbo Steps hasn't proved himself on the surface.
