BROADCASTER has returned a losing favourite on his last couple of starts but had his excuses last time. Third on his handicap debut in soft ground over the minimum trip at Carlisle, he'll be better suited to today's conditions and can open his account. One Boy has claims dropped in class having won his maiden at Redcar back in April while Madagascar Moll and Local Flier are other maiden winners with a shout. Fuel Injection beat Secret Applause in a handicap at Ripon last time but a 9lb rise looks a tad excessive.
