Another Citizen has never finished out of the first two in seven starts at this track but has just the one course victory to his name. He's 6lb higher today than when winning here in November and Cardinal has been raised the same amount after his course and distance victory in January. The latter has been beaten by LUCKY DAN since and Paul Green's charge gets the vote to return to winning ways in this grade after a couple of decent efforts in better company. Rylee Mooch has every chance off his current mark and Angelo Poliziano had been in fine form on this surface before before a below-par effort at Redcar last week.
