Adranian has already won twice at this track over 7f and went close again over C&D last time, but he has 9lb to find with POKER HOSPITAL on today's terms and that could prove beyond him. The latter is unlucky not to have won yet as she's gone close on numerous occasions, but the drop into this grade should see her off the mark. The remaining trio have it all to do at the weights with Class Monitor looking the best of those on her second at Nottingham last month.
