Bobs Her Uncle has yet to win but went close at Newcastle last time. A high stall number is not ideal, however, and the draw has done the veteran Scamperdale no favours either. Mr Lando's earlier double at Lingfield came on the Turf while Solvanna won on the Polytrack at Lingfield in between a couple of modest efforts at this course. Bert The Alert can figure off his current mark but the vote goes to LORAINE, who won easily over a mile here last month and looks worth another try over today's longer trip.
