A competitive finale where MR WOLF can take advantage of 2lb better terms and reverse placings with King Of Swords on their recent running here. The latter won the race that day by a couple of lengths and does like it here, so he is hardly taken on with huge confidence, but Mr Wolf is a standing dish at this place and still looks nicely handicapped from a mark of 73. Foreign Rhythm won well at Redcar and from a good draw he has claims under a 6lb penalty. First-time blinkers might add a little extra for topweight Northern Bolt, who is not out of this under his claimer, while Rio Sands should get very competitive, though he doesn't win very often. Mr Wolf can make it nine wins at the track. (Jonathan Doidge)
