Kames Park beat Daring Damsel and Layla's Boy over C&D last week and was second at a big price in a better race here on Friday. However, GABRIAL'S HOPE gets another chance as this looks less competitive than his latest task at Lingfield where he finished third to Tingo In The Tale. Reasons Unknown went close again when third at the same track on Friday having won here before that and Goldmadchen should go well as she scored on the Fibresand at Southwell in November and is equally at home on this surface. Broxbourne is sliding down the weights and it's only a matter of time before she takes advantage.
