SPANISH WEDDING went close at Beverley last time and looks capable of winning off his current mark. He seems sure to at least run his race which is more than can be said for most of these. Castilo Del Diablo, Daliance and Joyful Spirit were all big disappointments last time having won their previous starts while Inqadh was still beaten over seven lengths when third at Wolverhampton last month. Wildomar finally broke his duck over C&D a week ago though makes no appeal under a penalty but recent hurdles winner Grand Gold has been placed on his last couple of starts on the Flat and could make the frame again.
