You can never ignore SCHINKEN OTTO around here and he is back in the right grade today. The better ground will also help the six-time course and distance winner who is 5lb lower than when successful at the track in January. He can come good again ahead of Wetherby fourth Ginger's Lad, who may prefer an extra half-mile, and Hexham runner-up Zazamix. Bob's Dream has a chance at the weights but Turf Trivia continues to disappoint.
