A couple of these are looking to comeback from slightly disappointing efforts last time. Mumeyez is one of those having only managed sixth when sent off favourite at Salisbury last time and Gabrial's Wawa is another as his recent second at Musselburgh was no great improvement on his debut effort. However, MIDNIGHT FLOWER took a step forward when beaten only a short-head over 6f here last time and she gets the vote to open her account. Hidden Link and Elnadwa are other likely improvers while the newcomer Ihtikar is a half-brother to Wednesday's Nottingham winner Almuftarris and could go well.
