Musselburgh winner Mushaakis lost nothing in defeat behind Aussie Reigns at Newmarket but has been raised a 4lb since. Al Saham enters the reckoning after getting back to winning ways at Haydock while Tight Lipped has been in good form over course and distance lately, though is probably in the handicapper's grip now. The consistent Mawaakef and Code Of Honor might have place claims but this might be an opportunity for CASHPOINT to follow up a recent course and distance victory. He has a good strike rate and the drying ground is in his favour.
