None of these exactly arrive in form but veteran CRACK AT DAWN did win at Towcester two runs ago and would be thereabouts if forgiven a dismal showing at Southwell next time. Oranger is back on a winning mark while Grovemere is lightly raced over fences and has been placed over hurdles recently. Shantou Breeze was only beaten a nose at Fontwell on her penultimate outing but didn't reproduce that effort at the same track next time and is a long-standing maiden.
