Ned Curtis' claim takes care of SILVANUS' penalty and Paul Midgley's in-form Leicester winner is fancied to follow up here from a decent draw. Midnight Dynamo is also drawn high and could be interesting after a pipe-opener over C&D while Chosen One has been going well over the minimum trip and was second off his new mark at Catterick last week. Carlisle third Ballarina may be the pick of the remainder as the jury is out on both Angelo Poliziano and Scrooby Doo at present.
