Plenty with claims in a tricky finale with C&D winner Celtic Sixpence fitted with blinkers for the first time in a bid to spark a revival. Kevin Ryan puts up 7lb claimer Kevin Stott on Hopes N Dreams to counteract a steep climb in the weights while a three-year-old won this in 2010 so a market move for consistent maiden Lupo D'Oro shouldn't be ignored. Clear Praise won at Kempton when last racing over 6f but we're expecting another good run from AYE AYE DIGBY, who has been in good heart this year. He may have been beaten in a claimer at Folkestone last month but was giving 14lb to the winner and today's softer surface will be much more to his liking so he gets the vote. Mambo Spirit and Cocohatchee may be the pick of the remainder.
