This can go to VIOLENT VELOCITY who arrives fit from running, and winning, on the Polytrack. He's never far away at this course and scored over C&D last May. Greyfriarschorista is the highest rated in the field but the multiple all-weather winner has yet to score in 16 starts on turf while Marvo was ending a long barren spell when winning at Lingfield last month and is 4lb higher today. River Ardeche saves his best for the Fibresand nowadays and hasn't won on this surface since 2007 while the remainder look up against it on today's terms including the popular course veteran Rowan Lodge as he attempts to win the race named in his honour once again.
