Ingleby Angel has been raised a further 9lb since completing a double at Thirsk and may be vulnerable today but Las Verglas Star appears to have dropped to a fair mark judged on his latest second at Haydock and would go close if bringing his best to the table. Ginger Jack is gradually getting his act together again while Swing Alone met trouble in-running at Sandown last month, though is looking high enough in the weights now. INVISIBLE HUNTER is in danger of becoming disappointing and looks far from straightforward but this is a little easier than recent tests and he would be a danger to all if reproducing the form he showed last summer.
