Doc Hay was due to run here last night and doesn't look the force of old. Grissom may have also regressed while Tarooq hasn't won on Turf since 2010. MISSISSIPPI went close on a couple of occasions at Doncaster last summer on similar going. He made a promising reappearance on Town Moor earlier this month and may be too good for Clear Spring. The top weight landed a bit of a gamble at Windsor last time but is now on a career-high mark. The consistent Jack Luey was fourth over this trip at Doncaster in September but most of his recent runs have been over 5f and Muthmir lacks a recent outing.
