Another Wise Kid should improve for his recent pipe-opener over 6f here but Excel Bolt was a big disappointment when sent off favourite at Musselburgh on his comeback. LAST SOVEREIGN makes more appeal as he went close over today's trip at Beverley last week and can take advantage of this drop in class. At the bottom of the weights, Another Citizen is attempting to repeat his defeat of third-placed Six Wives after scoring at Ripon last week. He has a good chance of doing so off the same mark while Danziger, We'll Deal Again and First In Command are others with claims.
