Odin came good over a longer trip here recently but carries a penalty for his trouble. He still makes more appeal than Thecornishcowboy, who remains out of sorts, but may find FRESA too good. The latter won over 1m2f here in October and is worth a try over this extra distance. Both Singzak and Fly Solo have been placed over track and trip recently but neither look particularly well handicapped on that evidence so Tipperary winner Magnolia Ridge could prove a bigger danger off his current mark having only his second start for new connections.
