Dark Lane will need to improve again if he's to follow-up last week's win at Chepstow off a 6lb higher mark while Powerful Wind is moving in the opposite direction as he's 8lb lower than when scoring at York at this time last year. ANOTHER CITIZEN ran below par at Doncaster last time in a better class race but Tim Easterby's charge had Captain Scooby behind when scoring at Ripon before that and looks worth another chance back in this grade. Majestic Manannan ran well for fourth over track and trip on his reappearance and could also get involved.
