Kuanyao has won three times over this trip on Turf but all of his victories on Polytrack have been over 7f. Rothesay Chancer is better over 5f but was beaten in a seller at Wolverhampton last time. Johnny Splash's recent form has also been achieved over the minimum but Alis Aquilae was second over track and trip last time and wouldn't need to improve much on that to figure today. R WOODY isn't easy to predict but is due a good run and, well drawn, is certainly handicapped to go close in this off his current mark.
