These are separated by a ratings band of just 5lb with SLIPPER ORCHID just coming out top after his debut Polytrack success last time. There looked to be plenty more to come from Mick Halford's charge and Conor Hoban's claim will be a big help. Cash Or Casualty was conceding 4lb to Collingwood when beating him over track and trip last month but was receiving 3lb from Khyber Pass, who wasn't far behind. Nor was Dimitar, who had the worst of the draw. The winner was also giving 11lb to He's Got Rhythm when a length behind over a mile a fortnight ago and should have no problems with the latter. Indian Landing was making his all-weather debut when winning comfortably a month ago and there's better to come from Tracey Collins' charge.
