Fol Hollow does all his winning over the minimum trip nowadays and recent Hamilton winner Red Cape would prefer faster ground. LLEWELLYN arrives in fine form having landed a double on soft ground last month beating Diamond Vine by over two lengths on his latest start at Folkestone. He's just preferred to John Quinn's veteran Zomerlust who also rattled up a couple of wins before a below par effort at Ripon last time. Bay Of Fires and Middleton Flyer have a chance at the weights but will need to step up on their recent form to figure.
