WHO AM I was second at Worcester last week on similar going. A repeat of that effort may well suffice here as Gwili Spar has been raised 6lb since only going down by a nose over this trip at Towcester. Weston Lodge looks held by the selection on a line through Bedouin Bay but Shanks A Lot is an interesting runner having made a winning start by 25 lengths in point-to-points recently. Prince Pippin makes most appeal of the remainder.
