No Planning had been in fine form prior to his latest run at Warwick but may be in the handicapper's grip now. All of Sydney Paget's victories have come on ground with some give but he would have every chance on his win at Haydock in the autumn while Gullinbursti hasn't shown much since winning at Market Rasen in November. It's asking a lot of The Panama Kid to bounce back from a poor run here last month and Fentara looks ready for a rest but Imperial Vic is starting to come down the weights and could go well. ISLA PEARL FISHER is the senior runner here and on a career-high mark. But he gave weight and a beating to useful novice Kris Cross at Musselburgh two runs ago and a repeat of that effort could see him take this.
