Plenty of recent winning form to consider in this but LAWMANS THUNDER looks the most progressive. He's now 30lb higher than the first of his three wins at Kempton but never broke sweat to win by four lengths last time and is worth sticking with. Capo Rosso also bids for a four-timer off a 5lb higher mark and has already beaten Dubai Dynamo, Trail Blaze and Norse Blues. He also has the beating of recent Ripon winner King Torus on collateral form and should go close. Balty Boys can confirm Nottingham running with Two For Two and looks best of the rest.
