Gabrial The Boss finished a length ahead of Zain Spirit when third at Wolverhampton last time and should confirm running on better terms. Poitin won a maiden on the Turf track at Lingfield last month and steps up in trip for this while dual course and distance winner Taxiformissbyron has a shout back on the Polytrack having rattled up a hat-trick on this surface early in the year. CAERWYN is the least exposed after only a couple of outings in maiden company and Marcus Tregoning's charge may well find enough improvement to come out best competing at this low level for the first time.
