Suits Me had last year's winner Dubai Dynamo back in third at Ripon last month but failed to get involved at York last time when GINGER JACK finished fourth. The latter has subsequently scored at Ripon himself and a 3lb rise is unlikely to prevent another bold bid. Able Master won over track and trip last week but his previous efforts in this higher grade leave something to be desired and Sennockian Star is also upped in class. The latter had Chookie Royale over five lengths behind at Carlisle last time and will need to improve further at this level to match the likes of Hi There.
