Hans Adielsson usually concentrates on the Polytrack courses and COMPTON RAINBOW is only his third starter at this track. She's given the benefit of the doubt on today's slower surface and can make it three in a row having landed a double at Kempton last month. Rodean has won over track and trip and is back on a winning mark while Dewala has been placed here before and can be given a chance. Gay Gallivanter's 16/1 victory at this track in November now looks like a fluke and Dundrum Dancer remains winless in 23 starts.
