Hooligan Sean hasn't been seen since beaten 10 lengths into second last December and it's asking a lot to lose his maiden tag with a big weight on his reappearance. Dream Walker won over 6f here in May and had been going well until a very poor effort at Hamiliton last time. That wasn't his true form and he should do better but it's LORDSHIP who gets the nod. Tony Carroll's charge hasn't won for three years and is hardly consistent but he's now on a very lowly mark and will love the ground so Jake Payne can steer him to a welcome success. Marah Music gained his first victory at Chepstow and a 4lb rise shouldn't be a problem while the inconsistent Mark Anthony has slipped to his lowest-ever mark on his 45th start and could spring a surprise.
