Queen Grace and Harry Trotter dead-heated for third over track and trip last time and both have apprentices on board today attempting to gain an advantage. With that pair hard to separate, it could pay to take a chance on KNOCK STARS. She tried to make all over 6f here on her last couple of starts only to be caught close home and may hang on for victory this time dropping back to the minimum trip. Enigma Code is up 5lb for January's win over 6f here when he had Great Ability well behind but should still figure, while the returning Scatty Cat and former Richard Fahey inmate, Boom And Bloom, are other to consider.
