Standpoint is a winner without a penalty after landing an apprentice race at Epsom last week. He'll be thereabouts along with Honest Deal, who recorded a double at Wolverhampton last month and carries a penalty for his latest victory over LAYLA'S BOY. The latter has plenty to find on that evidence but his only start on this surface resulted in a 12 length victory and it could pay to side with John Mackie's charge back on the Fibresand. Dispol Diva is a C&D winner but looks high enough in the weights now but Kingaroo registered his sixth victory at this track last month and should be in the mix again despite a 5lb rise.
