Duke Of Monmouth won over fences off today's mark in November but hasn't been at his best lately. Dungeness has struggled off higher marks since winning at Warwick in January and fell on his latest start but Island Cruise would have claims on a couple of runs at Ludlow last month, though was well beaten last time. It's taken LIGHTS OF BROADWAY a while to rediscover her best but she only found Pyleigh Lass too good at Chepstow earlier this month and a reproduction of that effort would see her go close here.
