RAISE A SPARK is likely to start a short price for this and for good reason. Caught close home by Ozzy Thomas at Worcester last time, that's easily the best form on offer and Donald McCain's charge should be opening his account. Katcha Kopek and Seaviper have both been placed in points but the latter was brought down on his bumper debut. Johnny Go showed little on his first start so Going For Gold would not need to be anything out of the ordinary to figure on his racecourse bow.
