LITTLE INDIAN has to be forgiven a poor effort last time but Danny Brock's allowance means he can race off a lower mark today than when winning at Brighton in April. He gets a token vote in this lowly grade. Stablemate My Manekineko also has a shout and Darnathean posted one of his occasional good efforts when second on the Polytrack here last time. Not Rigg and Lady Crossmar have bits of form that could see them figure along with Fairy Mist, who beat Hawk Moth at Brighton last month.
