Balinderry was last of the five finishers at Market Rasen last time but has been placed around here a couple of times. Hi Candy is only a four-year-old and should be helped by her rider's 10lb claim while Alaccordion has to go on the short-list having won in this grade over course and distance last month. He's only 6lb higher and lightly-raced for his age. Dougalstar has claims on last year's form but has been well beaten in recent starts. BARTON ROSE was having only her sixth career start when scoring by nine lengths in a better race at Plumpton a week ago - she has the scope to defy her penalty.
