A typically open York sprint with WHOZTHECAT a speculative recommendation for an in-form yard. Admittedly disappointing last time, Declan Carroll's inmate has otherwise produced a series of strong efforts in competitive handicap company this term and looks a value option if forgiven that recent blip. Swilly Ferry finally returned to some sort of form last time and will be a leading player if continuing his resurgence off an attractive mark. Capone, unplaced at Listed level latest, won cosily at Kempton previously whilst Valery Borzov is starting to rediscover a consistent level and obliged with something in hand at Hamilton last time - he too looks on a good mark. Parisian Pyramid and Joseph Henry are others to note in a very trappy affair.
