Spin Again is likely to adopt his usual prominent position from a low draw and he's not out of this with Mickael Barzalona on board, but another jockey booking also takes the eye with Richard Hughes taking over the reins on CUT ACROSS. The latter may need the gaps to open from his wide draw but improvement is expected having won over 5f at Lingfield at the first time of asking. Proper Charlie is up 3lb for his recent success at the same track but makes more appeal than Riflessione while better is expected from Sketchy Evidence after his disappointing comeback run over 7f in January.
