This race is probably not as strong as the first division and a good opportunity for Untold Melody to return to winning ways after she failed to cope with the drop back to 5f at Newcastle six weeks ago. Dream Walker won at Yarmouth last month and was second at Pontefract last Sunday but his best form is on a much softer surface. Johnny Cavagin's two wins have been over 7f but Medam won over this trip at Wolverhampton last time, though is essentially a plater. Conowen and GLENNTEN are more interesting and the latter, who has had excuses in his last two starts, has fallen to a decent mark now and gets the vote.
