Lodgician, only third at Stratford last month, looks worth opposing again while Accessallareas has lost his way. But there are possibilities about McCoy's mount Unwanted Gift and Boosha, both second last time and apparently running into form. RUSTY NAIL was possibly helped by the fall of Moulin De La Croix over track and trip last month but may have won anyway. There was plenty of confidence behind Jimmy Frost's gelding that day and he may be capable of defying a 6lb higher mark.
