Silver Rime should be thereabouts again having finished runner-up over C&D in a higher grade last time while Wolverhampton maiden winner Iffraam has to come into the reckoning. Safe House ran a shocker on the Fibresand last time but scored at Musselburgh before that and Burnwynd Boy is upped in class having popped-up over C&D in May. Tom Dascombe's yard hit top form with a vengeance over the weekend and one of his winners was CHOSEN CHARACTER at Haydock on Friday. The latter won an apprentices race under today's pilot and can follow-up racing off the same mark here.
