On a four-timer, it's difficult to ignore Panther Patrol. He beat Ginzan by a length at Brighton to complete his hat-trick but loves to hear his hooves rattle and the going may not be fast enough for him here. Cruise Tothelimit is a previous course and distance winner back on a winning mark but he's proving hard to win with this year and was behind LEXI'S HERO, Panther Patrol and Smokethathunders at the track in May. Richard Fahey's charge will take some catching again if grabbing the rail so gets the nod with Makin The Rules having a bit to prove after a poor run at Pontefract and Angelito still high enough in the weights.
