HAZARD WARNING was beaten by the narrowest of margins when Hazza The Jazza caught him on the line over C&D last time. The latter has since won again and Tim Easterby's charge can go one better in this. Holding Fast has been thereabouts of late without threatening to actually win and finished ahead of Daisie Cutter last time while Woodland Fleur may do better on her handicap debut. Cromwell Rose is facing an easier task on her first start since September and is preferred to Persian Marvel.
