Tom Sawyer looks up against it as does Another Citizen. The latter's stablemate Mappin Time has claims on his best placed efforts but they've been over 5f on good ground and he won't get that here. Lady Paris may do better with some cut in the ground today but finished a long way behind Louis The Pious at Chester last time. The latter bids for his hat-trick here and should go close, but NAMWAHJOBO makes more appeal. He was below par over 7f on fast ground at Doncaster last time, but scored at Ayr under similar conditions to today's before that, and Jim Goldie's colt gets the vote.
