Mac Gille Eoin has won two of the last three renewals so a big run from him would be no surprise. BALDEMAR has the better recent form, however, and the three-time C&D winner is fancied to reverse recent form at this track with Sacrosanctus on better terms. There was little between them last time but an apprentice's 5lb claim on the former may make the difference today. Swiss Cross has something to find with the selection but Seeking Magic is usually thereabouts, though he's now 12lb higher than his latest win having been raised again for finishing second at Haydock last time. Taajub goes well here but is better over 5f nowadays and the rejuvenated Italian Tom makes more appeal having won three of his last four starts.
