Dandy Nicholls has a strong hand here as Saucy Brown bids for his hat-trick after scoring at York last time with Hotham not beaten far in second and slightly better off at the weights. Stablemate Jarrow also won on his latest start at Hamilton and an apprentice negates a 3lb rise, but CARANBOLA is actually better off at the weights despite winning at Beverley on Tuesday with John Cavanagh's 7lb claim taken into consideration. He's won over this longer trip and Mel Brittain's charge is taken to follow-up.
