Red Cape's best form lately has been in lesser company, though he is well drawn here. Master Bond has only had one run on the Polytrack so far and would be thereabouts if reproducing his second at Pontefract in October while Parisian Pyramid deserves a change of luck, though has already had four runs this month and has never won on the all-weather and is without a victory of any kind since the summer of 2010. WAKING WARRIOR has yet to win on the Polytrack but didn't do a lot wrong when third over 7f at Lingfield last time and may well be good enough to defy top weight in this as Fathsta's recent winning form has come in claimers and Bubbly Ballerina is high enough in the weights now.
