Dickie Le Davoir's winning run came to an end off today's mark at Ripon last week and Legal Eagle may well reverse earlier form with him here. Stratton Banker has won on turf but is much better on the Polytrack and he may struggle to follow-up his Kempton win, while Diman Waters gets first-time blinkers after playing up at the start at Doncaster last time where he did well to finish as close as fifth. Supporters of INDIAN TRAIL will be hoping Oldjoesaid runs well in the previous race as he beat Dandy Nicholls' charge by less than a length over C&D a fortnight ago and the veteran may have one more win in him yet off his current mark.
