Adam's Ale landed a maiden amateurs race at Redcar three weeks ago and steps up in trip. But WEST LEAKE HARE looks a better proposition as he scored in a higher grade at Catterick with Holy Angel back in fourth earlier this month. Dandy Nicholls' charge came up against the progressive Size over a mile at Lingfield last Saturday but can return to winning ways back over today's trip. Dhhamaan was a shock winner of a handicap over track and trip last time and Maggie Mey finished runner-up in the other division of the same race. The latter makes more appeal today with Mitchum looking best of the rest having tumbled down the weights.
