Abi Scarlet has a chance at the weights but is hard to fancy on recent form while today's shorter trip could prove a problem for Dubawi Phantom. Mr David went close in a handicap at Brighton last month and has every chance on that form dropped in class today but LIGHT FROM MARS could prove the answer to this. Twice a winner over track and trip, he also landed a double at Kempton earlier this year and will appreciate the return to Polytrack after a couple of recent outings on Turf. The remainder will do well to figure on today's terms.
