Most of these would have some sort of chance on their best form. Kent Ragstone is lightly-raced while Sporting Gold won at Lingfield and Haydock before disappointing on soft ground at Redcar. Commissar won over course and distance last month and Lingfield third Hector's Chance will probably run his race again without being quite good enough. Laser Blazer will be staying on when others have cried enough while Paloma's Prince is well treated on his form on the Polytrack in the spring. LITTLE BUXTED ran well in a better race here last time after winning at Lingfield. He's only had four runs so there should be more to come and Robert Mills' charge is preferred to Mallory Heights, who is more exposed.
