Brigadoon was well held off his new mark last time after scoring at Pontefract last month and Winning Spark will need to step up on the form of his recent maiden victory at this track. Potentiale has a 7lb claimer to help his cause after a string of placed efforts including a second over C&D, but TEGAN looks like another winner for Richard Hannon. She's made good progress since the beginning of August, registering four victories, and she may not have finished yet judged on her latest cosy win at Bath. Hygrove Welshlady and Zenarinda look best of the remainder.
