A tricky little handicap further complicated by the fact that Mizbah might not run if there is further rain. Kiwayu came good on the Polytrack last month but is untried on ground with some give while conditions could also pose a problem for Wolverhampton second Cape Savannah. Trend Is My Friend and Ffos Las winner Little Dutch Girl will handle the going, however, as will ROCKTHERUNWAY. The top weight has had a short break since finishing second over 1m6f at Haydock but is a tough sort and could be the one to be on if this develops into a war of attrition. Scarlet Whispers and Varnish were both disappointing last time while Emerald Invader has more to do than when winning a Kempton maiden and Marmas returns following a six-month absence.
