Another Citizen overcame a wide draw over C&D last time to score easily with Steelcut and Amadeus Denton filling the places. He'll be thereabouts again with a similar effort but HAMOODY is just preferred. Dandy Nicholls' charge was third to a couple of higher-rated rivals in a claimer at Lingfield last week and makes more appeal than stablemate Greenhead High, though the latter finished ahead of Ivestar over C&D earlier this month and had Above The Stars behind when fourth back at this track last time. Both Crimson Queen and Shawkantango look high enough in the weights at present.
