No surprise to see Dean Iarracht back here as he won a division of this last year having also won the 2010 renewal. The prospect of rain means he's overlooked this time around, however, and ASTERALES is preferred. Something went amiss over a longer trip at Bath last time but she'll handle any type of going and started favourite for one of these events at Hamilton in June. Sinatramania has a shout along with Cool Baranca and Eastlands Lad, though the latter has something to prove over today's longer trip.
