Bold Marc ended a long losing run when just getting the better of CASINO NIGHT over C&D last week. However, the latter re-opposes on more favourable terms and looks capable of turning the tables today. Euston Square was winning for only the second time when scoring here last time and is not certain to confirm running with fourth-placed Key Breeze, who will have come on for that outing, while Shabak Hom looks on a fair mark if he handles the drop back down in trip after going close over 1m2f on his latest start. Call Of Duty could prove best of the remainder.
