A pair of blinkers could sharpen up Dancing Dude while Coffee will be seeking to follow up a win at Worcester. Cerveza Dinero comes here off the back of a victory at Limerick but Father Shine only won a seller at Southwell in July and has been well beaten on the Flat since. Arctic Wings and Big Robert have become disappointing and Pickworth was pulled up when going for a hat-trick at Southwell and has a bit to prove now. LUCKY LUKEY won three times last year and has a very good record over track and trip. Jennie Candlish's charge looked to be on the way back when third at Southwell last month and may be the pick of the weights today with Bureaucrat and Worth A King'S likely to need this.
