An open handicap with few ruled out. The choice is ALDWICK BAY who has a career record of 4-20 on turf and has delivered three of those four successes at this idiosyncratic venue. He shaped really well on his return to action earlier in the month when a close fourth on the Polytrack and should be cherry-ripe returning to his favourite haunt. Guising has to go on the short-list after an easy Musselburgh success as he looked very much on the upgrade that day, whilst Mafeteng came good at the end of last season for John Dunlop. Now in the capable hands of Roger Charlton, she looks an interesting sort for the future but it could just be that this trip will be a little short on her seasonal reappearance. Nevertheless, she enters calculations along with the fairly-weighted Abundantly.
