Both Sabre Rock and Order Of Service have claims as they step up in distance with the latter preferred. 7f winner Beat The Tide should find today's trip within his compass but 1m4f stretched Gabrial The Thug's stamina at Pontefract last month and he should finish closer here. However, stablemate DOLPHIN VILLAGE found only one too good at Beverley last time when Causeway Foot finished back in fifth and he gets the vote to open his account. Handicap debutant Substantivo could prove best of the remainder on his return to action.
