Confidential Creek is back on the same mark as when scoring here in June and Ollie Pears tries him in first-time blinkers. Ivestar has never looked at home on the surface though he's quite well handicapped but a chance is taken with GHOSTWING. He was having his first start for Tony Carroll when failing to obtain a clear run at Lingfield and his new trainer will get the best out of him. Imjin River has three all-weather victories to his credit, two of them here, his latest being his first victory in four years in a messy race started by flag. The veteran Divertimenti will be having his 123rd start and is back on the same mark as when scoring here last March.
