This looks a tight little handicap. Decoy appeared to have a good chance at Hexham last time but couldn't quicken close home. He is 2lb higher here but Tom Scudamore's strength in the saddle will aid his cause. Bally Legend reappears on a decent mark but San Telm may need this run and Hayjack lost his way last season. Alberobello has been well beaten in both previous tries in this grade and Kartanian is still a maiden but Cocacobana is capable of running well fresh, though probably has a few pounds too much. BALLY RONE gets a speculative vote as he likes soft ground and the step up in trip will suit as he's already won over 3m between the flags. Nicky Nutjob could be out of his depth today.
