Primarily exposed lower-grade sprinters clash with the exception of the two three-year-olds, the best of whom looks to be Captain Ryan, although the Makin charge is hard to support against his elders after a 253-day absence. Tychaios is also likely to need the run, likewise High Tone who went close when last seen in August and rates a potential improver. The Margarson yard had a winner at Leicester over the weekend and maybe IMAGINARY DIVA can add to those gains as the yard moves into form. Jordan Vaughan's claim could prove useful on this course and distance winner who's scored in each of the previous four seasons. Pull The Pin remains capable in Class 5 and 6 company and although plying his trade mainly on artificial surfaces these days, showed more than enough at Beverley last time to suggest he'll deliver a good account off topweight.
