A couple of these are looking to take advantage of lower marks on the all-weather including Nant Saeson. He was beaten a head at Redcar last month but has yet to win a race and LINDORO is preferred. The latter also went close last time when runner-up in similar company at this track and can add to his two wins from earlier in the year. Ensnare bounced back to form here on his latest start and remains on a winning mark despite a 5lb rise while Cadmium Loch and Ryedale Dancer are both course winners but out of sorts at present.
