Newcastle winner Aryizad has a shout on her return to action while Gabrial's Hope ran well at Newcastle back in April. Obboorr scored over 1m4f at Kempton at the start of the year but is 5lb higher for this and Magnolia Rose has been well beaten since winning in soft ground at Doncaster in March. STAFFHOSS hasn't scored since 2012 but a recent third at Beverley suggests he's finally slipped far enough down the weights to get his head back in front. He gets a tentative vote wearing first-time blinkers in an uninspiring handicap.
