LUTINE CHARLIE has a bit to find with a couple of these on today's terms but won over today's trip on the turf track here last year and found only one too good over 7f last time. He's just preferred to Marvo who has been running well over longer trips this year without winning, while Hecton Lad has claims on his best form and can be forgiven a below par effort on his Fibresand debut last month. Twinkled has won over 7f here but is having his first start since October and may be better for the outing.
