Rise To Glory won a 6f handicap on soft ground at Ayr earlier this month so why he was contesting a 1m2f event at Redcar a week later is anyone's guess. He's won seven races in his career but none from a mark this high. Marsh Dragon dropped into a seller to score at Leicester but this isn't much better while Minimee was pulled up over hurdles at Huntingdon a couple of weeks ago. ISHIAMIRACLE won a division of this last year on heavy ground and is now on a 13lb lower mark and has a 7lb claimer on her back. She looked ready to win again at Brighton last time and won't get many better chances. Monsieur Pontaven returned to form when runner-up at Chepstow last month but didn't go as well at Ayr last time and has only won once in 29 starts on Turf.
