There was cut in the ground when Shimba Hills scored at Ffos Las last week and he's preferred to recent Leicester winner Daisy Boy. But both of the above are 6lb higher today and STRICTLY GLITZ is also penalised for Monday's win in soft ground at Thirsk. The latter has conditions to suit and gets the vote to go in again. The remainder are harder to fancy with White Rose Runner perhaps the best of them.
