Black Rider added to his earlier win at Doncaster when successful at Newcastle last time. He has the beating of Gabrial The Boss and the latter also has something to find with Baltic Prince on running here last month. Gabrial's Wawa hasn't threatened in three starts at this track since May and Excuse To Linger is preferred despite disappointing at Brighton last time. QUEEN AGGIE's slide down the weights sees her take a further drop in class and David Evans' filly gets the vote after her third in much better company over track and trip a fortnight ago.
