Dandy Nicholls' has won this twice in recent years and HAMOODY makes most appeal of the yard's three runners. Last July's Goodwood winner caught the eye making late headway after a slow start in a better race at Newmarket earlier this month and he looks set to strike here. Discanti won at Ripon last time and is now 4lb higher than when third in this last year, while Musselburgh winner Mon Brav has registered all four wins to date over the minimum trip. Whozthecat and Internationaldebut have claims, but River Falcon has gone straight back up in the weights after recording one of his rare wins over C&D last week, while Clumber Place rattled up last season's four-timer over 7f.
