LIGHT FROM MARS can send the punters home happy with Cadre and The Fifth Member others worthy of note. Rod Millman's charge was cruelly denied over this trip last time out having attempted to blast away from his rivals. At these weights, he can reverse form with his conqueror on that occasion, Dunn'o. Cadre won readily at Yarmouth. An unexposed four-year-old, he could be anything. The Fifth Member was a little below par on the polytrack at Kempton Park but the form of his Goodwood victory last term was given a big boost at the weekend by Marvo at Pontefract. Proponent has patchy lines of form though he could run well if on a going day. Kavachi surprisingly drops in trip having had his recent outings over further. More Time Tim is a willing individual that has paid his way in lesser grade. The market is watched in relation to Axiom. Similar comments apply to the pairing of Wintercast and Shamali as they hail from shrewd yards that can have them primed first time out. Light From Mars did not do a lot wrong last time and few could begrudge him compensation tonight.
