Poor fare but maybe this is the day for FIRST REBELLION to get on the scoreboard with Darren Egan a good booking for Tony Carroll. Not disgraced in any of six runs in the current campaign, runner-up efforts at Bath and Chepstow last month represent more than acceptable form at this level and he gets the nod. David Evans send two here with Lana preferred of the pair, especially with William Twiston-Davies claiming a useful 7lb, whilst Compton Crofter may have some improvement to deliver after just the four runs for a combination that do well with limited ammunition. And keep an eye on Voodoo in the market, sprinting for the first time off the bottom perch.
