Bartack was only beaten a head at Doncaster in this grade before easily landing a Brighton maiden. He probably has more to offer and should be prominent in this while Paul Green also runs a couple of three-year-old against these tough and experienced handicappers with World Record arguably the pick of the pair. Barren Brook looked to be on the way back at York but he'll need luck in-running and Mick Easterby also has Day Of The Eagle in the line-up. Copperwood has ability but also a mind of his own while Hakuna Matata carries a penalty for last week's win at Ripon, though that is countered by his young rider's 7lb claim. It's A Man's World should be thereabouts but HOT ROD MAMMA has been gradually running herself back into form and, thrown in on her best form, Dianne Sayer's mare can end her losing run here.
