Last year's winning team, Lord Of The Dance and Michelle Mullineaux, are back for more and can race off a 5lb lower mark this time. See The Storm arrives in good form but Hadaj is weighted to reverse recent running at Redcar. Hayley Moore has partnered two of the last three winners so Born To Surprise could go well and Red Refraction has a shout back over 7f. But the latter's stablemate DESERT SOCIETY looks set for a return to winning ways after going close at Newmarket and he gets the nod under Emily Jones.
