A three time C&D winner including last year's Carlisle Bell, Miami Gator is capable of making all on his day. ABIDHABIDUBAI just edges it at the weights here, however, and having gone close in similar company at Warwick last month she gets the vote. Mirrored finished behind a couple of higher rated rivals in a Chester claimer last time and should figure on that form but this is tougher than the plating race Kay Gee Be picked up at Doncaster last time. Moheebb is not without a chance but the remainder look up against it on today's terms.
