Plenty with claims in this but INTOMIST bids for a hat trick and is unpenalised for his latest win in an apprentices race at Salisbury. He scored on the Polytrack before that and looks to have stronger form than Bold Ring, who has been raised 5lb for her recent victory over track and trip. Wise Venture went close at Warwick last time and is dropping down a grade while Bang Tidy scored in better company at Doncaster last month and is only 3lb higher today. Homeward Strut and Abhaath are others with a shout.
