TURN ME ON made a winning return to action last time out and is taken to get the better of the in-form Campli and Kipchak. The selection managed two wins and five placed efforts in nine starts last season, and the consistent and likeable type should be able to follow up here. He is a specialist over 7f and should appreciate the going. Brian Ellison has his string in good form of late and his experienced gelding Campli was a winner last time out. He is a former bumper winner and was getting off the mark on the Flat at the 17th time of asking, and a return to hold-up tactics appear to have brought about an improvement in form of late. Kipchak is three times Lingfield Polytrack winner and is in superb form this year. He is the type his trainer excels with and we expect him to be there or thereabouts at the post. Eton Rifles was a winner last time out, but has been away from the track for seven months and will appreciate the run out here. Shotley Mac has done well here in the past but is not expected to be of cause for concern to our selection Turn Me On.
