The Nifty Fox has won over C&D and is effective on heavy ground so could be a factor in this if a draw under the stands rail proves to be an advantage. Much of the pace appears to be on the far side, however, with hat-trick-seekers Come On Dave and Midnight Dynamo both drawn low along with Even Stevens, an impressive winner at Doncaster nine days ago and capable of another bold showing under a penalty. Waking Warrior should be pressing for a place again while Towbee is another for the short-list but Jamaican Bolt, Tango Sky and Church Music all seem to have their fair share of weight. CRIMSON KNOT likes the Scottish air and has a good record on soft ground. She didn't enjoy much luck in-running when fourth at Chester last week and, though high enough in the weights at present, should give supporters a run for their money here at a decent price.
