Conditions will play a major part here and, as ALEXANDRAKOLLONTAI ploughed through the mud to score at Hamilton last week - she can follow up on similar ground despite her penalty. Mudaawem has only raced on good or fast ground to date and it's asking a lot for him to carry top weight on his handicap debut. Ingleby Symphony is another yet to face testing ground but she's generally been staying on and looks the type who could be suited by the conditions. Surround Sound could prove the main threat as he got no sort of run at York last time and an earlier effort on soft going at Beverley would put him in the frame for this.
