Present View won easily at Market Rasen last month but is taking on better opposition here off a 7lb higher mark. Guess Again didn't follow up his Warwick win at Taunton and is another climbing the weights but Summery Justice may have dropped to a winning mark and Hayjack was still just about in front when unseating his rider at the last at Stratford last time. Railway Dillon has place claims again if fully wound-up but MOHI RAHRERE likes it here and the ground may have dried up enough for him to show his best form. He may be the value in another tight-looking handicap.
