Cootehill Lass won in this grade over C&D in March but was unable to follow up when odds-on at Wolverhampton last month and may find a couple of these too strong. Mark Anthony only went down by a head to Dolly Parton at Thirsk last time but preference is for KINGSWINFORD, who was third in a better race at Chester as recently as Saturday. Provided that hasn't taken too much out of him, David Evans' charge is the one to beat here. Rainy Night won over C&D last July and was competing in this grade for the first time when fourth at Wolverhampton last month - he looks the pick of the remainder.
