Come On The Irons had Pizzetti behind when winning over 1m4f at Folkestone last time and carries a penalty for his first attempt at today's trip. Red Current has returned to the Flat in fine form, but the handicapper has raised her 9lb for her recent win over a shorter distance at Bath and DR FINLEY is preferred. He stayed on well to score over 2m at Yarmouth last month and a 5lb rise may not be enough to prevent a follow-up with Kieren Fallon taking over the reins in a less competitive race. The remainder are struggling for form and will do well to get into contention.
