Safety Check won a handicap over 7f here last month but was then a beaten favourite off a higher mark over a mile at Kempton. He looks sure to be in the thick of this but one of the recent maiden winners may improve past him. STORMARDAL could be the one as he ran out a ready winner at Carlisle last time and will have no problem with today's trip. Elysian Prince is another to consider on the back of a win on the Polytrack and Photography could figure having returned a narrow-margin winner at Doncaster. Both Hannon representatives, Gold Top and The Alamo, ran shockers last time so Newmarket Warrior makes more appeal.
