Black Rider was still beaten seven lengths when runner-up at Yarmouth recently and Redcar winner Surround Sound makes more appeal back down in trip. DARKSIDE is fancied to reverse Redcar running with the latter, however, as he had Spider House back in third at the same track last month. A subsequent short-head defeat off today's mark suggests Tracy Waggott's charge is capable of going in again. Red Gift is usually thereabouts at this level and Brooke's Bounty may figure dropped in class.
