Diddley Dee is probably better over shorter trips but has won here this year and shouldn't be far away again. Oh Right was no match for Quinder Spring at Cartmel last year and has gone back up in the weights again since his comeback second at the same course while Lucinda Russell's grey races for the first time since May. Irish raider Cillaseal and the consistent Solway Dornal may find a couple too good again while Baizically was pulled up at Listowel on Saturday. KILVERGAN BOY races from out of the handicap but is still well treated on past form and is obviously still thought capable of running well as he was sent off favourite at Ffos Las after a lay-off. He may be worth another chance.
