MYBOYALFIE returned to form with a win on soft ground at Lingfield last week. He has a penalty to carry but this doesn't look any tougher and he can follow-up. Douze Points has been in fine fettle over longer trips at Wolverhampton recently while Hail Promenader won over a mile at this track last time but on good to firm going. Fonterutoli is another with the fast ground form to his name while Spinning Ridge should be thereabouts again having finished runner-up over track and trip off today's mark on his latest start.
