SPITFIRE was giving weight to higher-rated rivals when winning a seller over course and distance last time. He should go in again if producing a similar effort. Clubland's recent improvement came on the Turf and he's harder to fancy on his earlier form at this track while Hazard Warning has so far proved best at Wolverhampton. The remainder all have past form here which entitles them to consideration but are hard to catch right and that includes previous course and distance winners Pull The Pin and Interchoice Star.
