Iron Range made an impressive debut at Ayr last September when landing the odds by five lengths but hasn't been seen at the track since. Red Roar has been in fine form over 5f recently, winning twice at Beverley, but has something to prove over today's trip and Invincible Force has a 6lb penalty for his recent win at Carlisle. After four wins earlier in the season, the handicapper looked to have finally caught up with KLYNCH. However, he went close at Hamilton last time off today's mark and hasn't stopped improving yet on that evidence. He gets the nod here with Cornus and River Falcon looking best of the rest.
