Sinatramania and Pattern Mark both seem best with some cut in the ground and are unlikely to get that here, while Wood Fairy drops back in trip after posting a disappointing effort when favourite at Beverley last time. The penny has dropped with BYRON BEAR of late and he ran out a clear winner over mile at Pontefract recently. He'll stay this longer trip on that evidence and can follow up. Chadford has something to find with the selection on latest running and the rest are hard to fancy.
