Presumido ran his best race so far at Kempton last time and must have a chance in this modest handicap being a lot less exposed than the majority of his rivals. Euroquip Boy scraped a narrow win at Chepstow last time and at least arrives in form. But Michael Scudamore's charge hasn't shown much on the Polytrack so far while Amelia Jay seems better over 5f. Old STEEL CITY BOY wins his fair share of these and has been dropped a couple of pounds since his latest course and distance third. Ann Stokell knows how to get the best out of her charge and he can land the spoils here with Sarah Berry probably best of the rest.
