LAST DESTINATION has plenty going for him here. He ran out an easy winner at Beverley last week and this looks less competitive. A decent claimer allows him to race off a lower mark despite a penalty and Nigel Tinkler's charge is taken to follow-up. Deep Applause is likely to make another bold bid having gone close at Thirsk a week ago with Syncopated Lady just behind and she too can figure. Cannon Bolt's only decent run of the season so far came over 7f here and Smart Step showed a bit more last time.
