Blue Clumber couldn't cope with a rise in the weights for her earlier win in soft ground at Chepstow and Imperial Spirit was winning for the first time in 26 starts at Wolverhampton last week. The latter may struggle off a higher mark in this while Coconut Kisses would prefer some cut in the ground. Scarlet Strand finished last on the all-weather having won over track and trip before that and WINNIE PERRY has yet to score, but he started this season on a 10lb higher mark and after a couple of recent placed efforts, it could be his turn today.
