NEW RICH has raced twice over track and trip and won on both occasions. That includes his latest start here when beating Ivestar. Divine Call ran better than his finishing position suggests when sixth at Wolverhampton last time while Insolenceofoffice could get involved back on the Polytrack after a couple of outings on the Fibresand at Southwell. Katy Spirit won twice here last year and Tingle Tangle is one of the least exposed as he returns to action after a lay-off.
